How to join the SchoolDNS service
This information is for school IT leads or school IT providers who want to join the SchoolDNS service.
Liverton Security will support you through the process. First, email letting them know you would like to join SchoolDNS.
Liverton Security will ask for:
- the authorisation code, sometimes known as EPP number or UDAI
- your zone records, files or name servers
- contact details for the Domain Name Commission website (if different from current)
- contact details for the user to be set up in the SchoolDNS portal.
Download this document for more detailed information on how to join the DNS service.
The authorisation code, sometimes known as the EPP number or UDAI, is an 8-digit case sensitive password. This domain password is to protect against other people attempting to transfer it to their system.
You can get yours from your existing provider.
These are the files or records that tell the system where to send internet traffic to once someone types your domain name into a browser.
You get these from your current provider.
How to find details about your domain and provider
Check the Domain Name Commission NZ website to find out details on:
- where your school’s domain is registered and hosted
- your school’s registered contacts for your domain.
