'CHC' sounded out sounds slighty rude :S Just like naming a child, all interpretations  should be considered!

Good find though

What Scott said.

Seriously there seems like 100s of new TLDs coming out, the NZ DNC/InternetNZ are planning on opening up 2nd level registrations, it's pointless having vanity 2nd level or even 3rd level domains.  When you can just have smiths.shop or smiths.nz, why do you need smiths.somejunk.co.nz or smiths.somejunk.com ?

Ok just a thought
the only point I would make is that
If you are a New Zealand based business selling to New Zealanders you need to have a .co.nz AND a .com

If you are a rest of the world business you MUST have a .com forget all the new vanity names. Until we change the system completely. The rest of the world consumer will always default to .com

Yeah....GOOGLE.com...to find what they're looking for.  Seriously the actual URL is meaningless...it's all about searchability.
