The Domain Name Commission accepts that there is, in some circumstances, access to .nz registration information that may exceed the rate-limit threshold of the protections in place.

In exceptional circumstances the Domain Name Commission may enter into agreements with appropriate entities granting them non-rate-limited access to the .nz query service through the .nz Domain Name Commission website. These agreements are continually monitored by the Domain Name Commission. 

Non-rate-limited access to the .nz registration information is also available via Port 43, however this provides reduced .nz registration information. The Domain Name Commission is aslo able to enter into agreements with entities that require this reduced information. 

If you are a reseller of .nz domain names, we recommend that you contact the .nz Authorised Registrar that you are managing .nz domain names through to see if they are able to assist.

If you are an entity that is continually being rate-limited or have any questions, please email the Domain Name Commission at info@dnc.org.nz
