Second Level Domain Registration Documents

 * EPP Guide: HEXONET_EPP_Guide_to_the_New_Procedures_for_NZ_Domains_v1.00.pdf

Generating a UDAI

In order to set a UDAI code (Unique Domain Authorisation ID) for your domain, please proceed as follows in the HEXONET Control Panel:

  1. Unlock the domain (remove the transfer lock)
  2. Wait a few minutes
  3. go to Tools > API Library > ObjectLog and enter the domain.

The latest response will deliver the NEW UDAI. While using the API, after unlocking the domain, you will receive an Event from our system with the new UDAI code.

Expiring Authorization Codes

Please note that UDAIs may only be obtained from the current registrar of a domain name, and that they expire after 30 days.

Registering Reserved Second Level Domains

In order to register a reserved second-level .NZ domain for an existing third-level domain, you can simply request a transfer of the desired second-level name and provide the UDAI of your third-level domain with a period of 1 (one) year. If necessary, see above on how to obtain a UDAI for an existing domain.

The transfer may then be requested in our Control Panel or with the following API command using the new UDAI (AUTH) of the third-level domain:

COMMAND = Transferdomain
DOMAIN = example.nz
AUTH = ABCDE1234
PERIOD = 1
EOF

RegistrarOC

Restore Process

To restore a domain as a RegistrarOC customer, you simply have to execute the RestoreDomain command. HEXONET directly forwards the restore request to the registry, which performs the restore in real-time. As soon as the restore is complete, the domain will get assigned to your account with the original domain data.

Please do not initiate a restore directly at the registry (e.g. using the registrar webinterface). All restore operations must be performed through our system.
