Domain names competition opens with a twist

10.12.2002

The registration of internet domain names has opened up to competition, with a twist. 

The previous monopoly supplier, Domainz, will operate as a special "stabilising registrar", to help the changeover rather than compete on price. 

On Saturday domain name sellers Webaddress, Iserve and Iconz connected to a new shared registry system, and the Herald understands at least 20 others will join over the next three months. 

The Internet Society of New Zealand (InternetNZ), which owns Domainz, would like some but not all Domainz customers to shift to these other incoming registrars. 

Society secretary David Farrar said in March that a letter would go out to any Domainz customers who had remained by default with Domainz, asking them which of the registrars they wanted to be with. 

InternetNZ intends to sell Domainz to avoid a conflict of interest, as it owns the firm that runs the registry system as well. Its stabilising registrar agreement with Domainz ends in September next year. 

In October and November Domainz increased its wholesale price for domain names to A-level providers from $22.50 a year to $27, and this will go up to $39.38 in February. This attracted some criticism.
