Individual Registrant Privacy Option


NZRS has implemented the Whois Registrant Privacy Option for .nz domain names and we are required to comply with this policy change until March 28, 2018.


Thus, as of March 28, 2018 it will be possible for natural persons (individual registrants not in significant trade) to hide their contact details in the whois. The privacy option can be set for the contact address, phone number and fax number, but not for the email address, organization or name. To use this option, please submit a AddContact or ModifyContact command with extension parameter

X-UNDISCLOSE = address,phone,fax

The new privacy option for .nz is available in our OT&E for testing.


Registry reference: Individual Registrant Privacy Option
