Contracted TLDs provided password-protected FTP downloads of compressed
master zone files starting at least two decades ago. CZDS is a putatively
better replacement for FTP that avoids every TLD having to manage
credentials for every client.
A few of the TLDs added in the first rounds still use FTP, including
.aero and .post.
If you want more background, just ask.
