These ones are really important

You may have seen lately some mentions of new domain names for New Zealand.

These are domain names that do not have the .co at the end of them. For example, Deepweb’s domain name would be http://deepweb.nz

As from the beginning of this month, anyone can register these domains.

Normally I would not recommend getting additional domain names unless you were selling into a specific country or were looking to protect your brand.

However in this case I believe that these new domain names are worth getting because:

  • You don’t want someone else getting a very similar domain name to you
  • These domains are likely to become the default once they become more widespread

They cost the same as standard domains ($39.95+gst)

For a while at least, it will be a good idea to keep your existing domain name registered even if you get the new .nz address.
