Following the domain name changing scheme, will geekzone be getting in on this?

I hear JohnR got that domain and is redirecting traffic to a few dodgy sites :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I am planning to acquire the domain and redirect it, the same as the other ones we have.

Bit of a money spinner short term for the domain registrars, and quite a few of my client have been preregistering the shorter .nz domain and will be redirecting it. . Long term though I can see people mainly using .nz, which I suspect will decrease the number of .nz domains. I believe you can also reserve your .nz domain for 2 years at no charge if it is PRR.

Atleast it's a better situation than those who took a .kiwi.nz then having .kiwi being approved
