New Zealand Country Information

Foreign investors are attracted to New Zealand because it is a safe and stable country with a strong commercial outlook. It is also a democratic country with a free-market philosophy. Although geographically isolated from the rest of the world, New Zealand is the first country to greet each new business day. So businesses in New Zealand is always ahead and able to do business with every other country.

Instra Corporation is one of the earliest registrars to be accredited with NZRS. We have a local office in New Zealand. Feel free to drop by our office to speak to a friendly domain name specialist should you have any questions or clarifications.

.NZ Domain Information

The new release of the top-level domain .nz represents a great opportunity for you to secure a shorter, more easily remembered URL that can be used for both websites and email.

New Zealand has long had a proud history of innovation, and is often used as a test market for emerging technologies such as electronic funds transfer at point-of-purchase (eftpos).  This new top-level domain represents a fantastic opportunity for both New Zealanders and global firms to claim there right to use their desired domain in this part of the Internet.

For existing .nz second-level domain registrants, you will fall into one of three categories, with varying rights for either priority reservation/registration, available registration, or conflicted status. The video below explains this in a little bit more detail:

Local domain names such as .nz for New Zealand give your company a professional image, which demonstrates proof of your commitment to local customers. By targeting the local New Zealand market, you can maximise your company's revenues.

Billing Cycles

New Zealand domains can have up to a maximum of 10 years of registration. Renewals are due when the domain expires based on the number of years of registration.


New Zealand Domains are renewed based on the above billing cycle at our normal domain registration prices. New Zealand Domains can now be renewed up to a maximum of 10 years.


Transfers are FREE for all New Zealand domain name holders wishing to transfer to Instra Corporation. When your domain is transferred the Billing Cycle you are currently on is unchanged.

Domain Password (UDAI)

All New Zealand domains have a unique password of letters and numbers. This password called a UDAI. It is required to make changes to the domain name and transfer the domain name. Should any .nz registrant of Instra Corporation be unable to find the UDAI or feel your security may of been compromised, then we can generate a new UDAI for you and email it. This will by default go to admin contact listed in the .nz registry. Should the email address be incorrect that is in the WHOIS, then we will require a fax on a signed company letterhead from an authorised person within your organisation.
