dpf writes "InternetNZ (, the .nz ccTLD Manager, is selling Domainz ( Domainz was the .nz registry and sale registrar until October 2002 and since the introduction of a new shared registry system has become a registrar for .nz domain names."

"InternetNZ believes it is a conflict of interest to own a registrar, as well as owning the new registry ( and also act as market regulator (, so it decided last year to sell Domainz by 30 September 2003 when its role as a stabilising registrar concludes.

Domainz is the dominant registrar in the .nz market.

A copy of the sale notice is online and sets out how interested parties can gain a copy of the sale information memorandum by contacting Tim Russell of Deloitte Corporate Finance."
