As expected, Domainz has separated out secondary name service from its fee structure. Such service, provided by Domainz and using ns1.waikato.ac.nz to list names, had been bundled automatically into the domain service, whether it was used by holders or not.
New registrations without name service will now cost $83.25 GST inclusive, a saving of 14%. Annual renewal fees for domains with secondary name service have come down to $59.63, a saving of 20%. Even those customers who take up name service through Domainz receive a 2% cut. The new charges take effect on November 1.
Only about 30% of name holders now use the secondary domain name service, which will soon be re-branded under Domainz.
The registry has also set out new debt collection procedures. Further details. Further details are available at http://www.domainz.net.nz/newsstand/news.html
