.nz NTP Network

Welcome to the .nz NTP server network. To find out about NTP, read the Introduction to NTP

The network currently consists of four stratum 1 NTP servers, each with its own GPS time source and internal rubidium oscillator. The page on Network architecture gives further details.

These timeservers are provided primarily for network operators based within New Zealand and peripatetic users who are ordinarily based in NZ. It is not a public network but is covered by an Acceptable use policy.

These NTP servers are operated by Internet New Zealand Inc., the central registry for .nz domain names. InternetNZ is the charity and open membership society that provides a voice for the Internet in New Zealand and works on behalf of all Internet users across the country. If you want to learn more about how .nz is managed and operated then see the Domain Name Commission Limited site, a wholly-owned subsidiary of InternetNZ.

NTP is a core technology for the .nz domain name space, used amongst other things to synchronise data collection across our nameserver network to precisely order distributed events. It is because NTP is such a critical technology to .nz that we provide these timeservers and support them professionally.
