Transferring .nz domain names

How to transfer a .nz domain

You can transfer your .nz domain names to Webcentral.

  1. You can submit a transfer request via our website (click here) or your Webcentral account (click here to log in). This transfer order must contain the UDAI (Unique Domain Authentication Identifier) password for the domain. If a password is not supplied, or it is incorrect, the transfer will not be successful.
  2. Once Webcentral receives the transfer order, we verify the UDAI password with the New Zealand Registry, to ensure that the transfer can proceed. When we receive confirmation that the UDAI password is correct, we will then apply directly to the Registry for the transfer of the domain.
  3. The New Zealand Registry will transfer the domain immediately (as long as the UDAI password is correct) and the domain will be set up within your Webcentral account. You will be notified of the successful transfer via email. Your billing information will also be charged for the renewal of the domain, which is required when transferring .nz domains.

Please note: Webcentral does not send "requests for authorisation" emails for .nz domain transfers.

What is my UDAI password?

The UDAI (Unique Domain Authentication Identifier) password is only applicable to .nz domains. If you have lost your UDAI password, simply contact your registrar (the company you pay to keep your domain).

If you are a Webcentral customer and want to find your UDAI password:

  1. Log in to your account
  2. Click Manage, next to your domain
  3. Click Domain Name
  4. Click Generate new UDAI code
