For those interested in the policy issues around .nz domain names, the Domain Name Commissioner has published two new policies for consultation.
The policy on second level domains is at http://www.dnc.org.nz/content//proposed_new_2LD_policy.pdf. This is about what second level domains there are (co.nz, org.nz, geek.nz etc), how they are created and also whether one should allow registrations directly under .nz such as telecom.nz instead of telecom.co.nz
Also a policy on who is allowed to do zone transfers is at http://www.dnc.org.nz/content//proposed_new_zone_transfer_policy.pdf. This won’t be of interest to many people – basically it is about under what circumstances can someone gain access to the master list of .nz addresses.
