Self-conflicted Domains to be released to public

Jul 4, 2018 · by Domains Direct · 1 min read Self-conflicted Domains to be released to public

Last year several thousand shortened .nz Domains were released back into the public pool, where conflicting registrants had not specified their choice to own.

This reduced the number of conflicted Domains from over 13,000 to around 2,500.

The current DNC policy states that any Domains in a "self-conflicted" status, i.e. same nameholder for all second-level Domains, but hasn't registered shortened .nz version, must either register it or release it back into the public pool.

The office of the Domain Name Commissioner will soon be following up with any self-conflicted nameholders to get them all resolved.
