After you have signed up with us, contact your present domain name registrar and change the name servers of your domain name to:
10. I have an existing ".co.nz" domain, can you cover the cost of this domain under your plans?
No. You can renew such domain names through us at just NZ$19.95 per year though.
a. I like your ".co.nz" price, how do I renew my ".co.nz" domain names through you?
This process can be done via the client login area, contact us for further information.
c. That you transfer the domain registrar to us at least 15 days BEFORE the expiry date of your present domain name. If you have less than 15 days to the expiry of your domain name, we will advice that you renew your domain name with your present registrar and transfer the domain name to us the following year.
d. Once we have initiated the transfer of registrar, your present registrar may send an email to the administrative contact's email address (that's probably you, unless someone else registered the domain name on your behalf) to confirm that you had indeed authorise the transfer to another domain registrar. Please reply to this email from your present registrar promptly. Otherwise, the transfer will not be successful and your domain name may expire as a result.
e. In the event that the administrative contact is not you (for example your web designer registered the domain name on your behalf and listed his email address instead), then, you must ask the administrative contact to acknowledge and reply to the email from your present registrar. Otherwise, the transfer will not be successful.
11. How do I transfer my existing domain name to you?
A ) To use your domain name on our servers, you need only modify the DNS (Domain Name Servers) information of your domain. To do so, you will need to access the control panel provided by your existing domain name registrar. If you do not have access to the domain name control panel, you will have to request for that from the person who registered the domain name on your behalf. Often, that may be your existing web hosting provider. Once you have gained access to the domain name control panel, you will need to modify the Domain Name Server information to:
The above is applicable for both ".com" or ".co.nz" type of domain names (for that matter, just about any domain name). However, some ".co.nz" domain registrar have more stringent requirements. They may require you to key in, not just your login ID and password, but also your domain UDAI (Unique Domain Authentication Identification). You should have the UDAI when you first register your ".co.nz" domain name. If you do not have the domain name UDAI, please request that from your existing domain registrar.
If you simply modify your domain names' DNS information, you will are liable to renew the annual fees with your existing domain registrar.
B) On the other hand, if you wish to change your domain registrar to the domain registrar that we use, you will need to instruct us to initiate a domain registrar change on your behalf. The domain name registrar change process is separate and distinct from point A above. This would mean that, henceforth, you want to renew your domain names through us. To do that, please refer to points 12 and 14 in this FAQ.
C) If you need us to modify the name servers of your domain name on your behalf, you will have to provide us the following:
i) domain name control panel ID
