Domain Registration and Transferring: .CO.NZ, .NET.NZ & ORG.NZ

Registrations: Anyone can register the CO.NZ, .NET.NZ & ORG.NZ New Zealand TLDs regardless of where they live.


Transfers: Before you submit to transfer your .NZ domain name to HostPapa, please do the following:

  1. Ensure that all contact information and email addresses on your domain are correct.

  2. Possess your domain’s transfer UDAI (Unique Domain Authentication Identifier). If you have lost your UDAI, you can request your current domain registrar to generate you a new one.


  • When the transfer request is submitted, our registrar, OpenSRS/Tucows, sends an email to the listed registrant asking them to confirm the transfer with the valid transfer UDAI. If confirmation is not received within 7 days of the request, the transfer is cancelled and HostPapa will notify you of your transfer failure.

  • Once you have confirmed your domain registration transfer with your correct UDAI, your transfer may take up to 7 days to complete. HostPapa will notify you of your transfer’s completion.

  • A UDAI can also be called an Auth Code or EPP Key.

  • .NZ domains cannot be transferred within the first 60 days of registration or recently transferred domain.

  • Domain privacy is not available for .NZ domains.

  • .NZ domains must be renewed at least 3 days prior to expiry or it will be deleted by the registry and held for 90-days in redemption. Redemption fees apply to renew/redeem the domain.
