The national Internet registry, Domainz, has filled out its plans for the holiday season - after copping criticism over its initial announcement that its office would close from December 23 to January 6.
The Domainz office closed as scheduled, but the company posted a new release on its site expanding holiday plans.
Voice and email messages taken at the Domainz office will be "regularly cleared" and for issues of "an especially critical nature" the news release lists email and voicemail phone contacts for CEO Patrick O'Brien, as well as two other staff members.
But anyone looking to make additions, changes or cancellations within the .nz DNS is out of luck. The last zone file build was conducted yesterday, and new domains will sit in Domainz' "registrations in progress" queue for as long as two weeks.
The only way those registrations will be enacted during that time is if the .nz zone has to be rebuilt for other reasons, in which case all pending changes will be activated.
