Change of Registrant Nameholder
Posted by Joshua Armstrong on 08 April 2019 10:35 AM

To change ownership of a domain, the Registrant name needs to be updated. This can only be achieved by the current Registrar. The change can only be made when accompanied by:


A valid UDAI code for the domain if it is a domain ending in .nz


A valid EPP code for the domain if it is a Top Level Domain (TLD) eg. .com, .info, etc...

To request a Change of Registrant, you will need to complete the Change of Registrant form as it is a legal change of ownership. A separate form needs to be completed for each separate domain. Both parties (the existing registrant and the prospective registrant) will need to complete and sign the form to authorise the change. Copy of photo identification for the owner of a personal domain may also be required. The form for this change can be found at the following link:

Please download, print, complete and return our Change of Nameholder form.

Note: The Domain name ownership will not be transferred on request of the Technical or Administrative contact, as these are not the owners of the Domain.

After receiving company details we confirm and validate the director's identity against the New Zealand Companies Register before making any changes.
