Resellers are businesses or organisations that provide domain name registration services to the public but are not .nz Authorised Registrars. Resellers buy .nz domain names and ultimately manage domain name records for their registrants through an .nz Authorised Registrar. Resellers do not have direct access to the .nz registry.
Where possible resellers should have an agreement with their .nz Authorised Registrar. DNCL has made a draft agreement available here that we encourage is implemented. We have also produced a guide for .nz domain name resellers.
