Welcome to the Domain Name Commission and .nz

The Search Domains tool has been updated to allow search on either a complete .nz domain name or any term which will display the status for each of the 15 2LDs

The Domain Name Commission (DNC) manages the .nz domain name space and protects the interests and rights of everyone who uses it.

.nz is our home. It allows us to be instantly found online and shows that we are unique. By choosing a .nz domain name, you are choosing an online address specific to the New Zealand identity.

On our website you’ll find resources about registering .nz domain names as well as information about what to do if you’ve a concern about the management of your own domain name.

We’re here to help so if you need further assistance, or you see something that you think we can improve on, please contact us at
