In previous newsletters we advised about reserving your .nz domain name before 30 March when you may have had Preferential Rights to it.
Now that this deadline has passed all remaining .nz domain names are available on a first come, first served basis.
So your competitor is able to register the .nz version of your business / website name if you haven’t.
You are no longer able to reserve it for free. If you want your .nz domain, you now need to register it with any NZ domain registrar.
And you may even want to check to see if you can obtain your competitor’s name! Or some very good generic names may not have been reserved.
To see if a name is reserved or registered go to http://dnc.org.nz/ and use Search Domains (top left).
