NetHui 2019 – Wellington – 3 – 4 October 2019


NetHui brings everybody and anybody that wants to talk about the Internet together. It’s not a conference or a BarCamp, and speakers don’t talk at you all day. It is instead about discussing and exploring possibilities, ideas and challenges, together.

NetHui is made for the community, with the community. It’s designed by the people who want to go. InternetNZ wants to hear what it is that matters to you and what you want to talk about – and then we help to pull it all together.

NetHui is one of the most exciting and dynamic events for discussing our Internet in New Zealand. We would love to have you come and join us and join these conversations and explorations too.

The theme for NetHui 2019 is safety, inclusion and wellbeing on the open Internet.

Domain Name Abuse Forum – Wellington – 27 November 2018

InternetNZ .NZ Domain Name Commission


Finding solutions for a safer .nz space.

The Domain Name Abuse Forum invites you to participate and contribute to discussions and working sessions that aim to identify the issues surrounding domain name abuse. Forum attendees will work together to understand the issues and discuss and identify how to best tackle these challenges, including:

  • whether or how the .nz domain name space should deal with content abuse, e.g. online shopping and scam websites

  • how to minimise data quality issues from the .nz domain name space, e.g. fake or invalid registration details

  • how we can minimise and mitigate technical attacks on the .nz domain name space and protect this vital infrastructure.

The forum will be a space for collaboration between agencies inviting lawyers and law enforcement, Internet safety and security experts, government departments, academics, civil society and more.

All of this to make .nz a safer and more trusted domain name space.

Pre-reading: The Internet and Jurisdiction Policy Network is working at the global level on issues that cross over with this forum. You may find interesting and relevant information on their website at We have prepared some specific pre-reading docs that you may be interested in reading before the event:
