.KIWI.NZ Now Available for Registration
As you may have heard, InternetNZ recently introduced a new Third-Level Domain ".kiwi.nz". It was launched provisionally on September 11, 2012. One of the main provisions was that the registry needed to receive more than 500 registrations within the first month for registrations to start being taken like a regular Third-Level .NZ Domain. In the first 24 hours after launch this threshold was surpassed.
InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) a subsidiary of the Domain Name Commission, has officially launched .kiwi.nz – a move that has pushed the total number of .nz registrations past 500,000. InternetNZ is the recognized delegated manager for the .nz country code top level domain. http://internetnz.net.nz/about-us
We are pleased to offer this to our .co.nz resellers effective immediately. Pricing relations for .kiwi.nz have already been entered in your account. The registry has already received a strong uptake in new .kiwi.nz registrations. We encourage you to promote this new extension to your customers.
