Protect your brand and stake your claim in the .nz domain name land grab - 11th Sep 2014

For the first time ever 'second level' domains like the .co in '.co.nz' and the .org in '.org.nz' are going to become optional. You'll be able to get .nz names with them, without them, or both. For example you will be able to register yourdomain.nz as well as yourdomain.co.nz.

The change to allow registrations directly at the second level is one of the most significant things to occur in the .nz domain name space for many years.

Great, so what now?

In most cases it's straightforward but in others it can be a little complex. Not all domain names will be able to be immediately registered. If for example there are two existing domains, acme.co.nz and acme.org.nz owned by two different people then there is a process to go through.

Don't worry though - we've made a super easy tool for you to use to check whether your new .nz domain will be available and if you want to secure it you can use the tool to let us know.
