Resolved a conflict and tried to register a .nz with Orcon/iserve (to keep everything with the same registrar) but there's no .nz in the dropdown list?

PeterReader needs more information from you.

I just registered mine using Metaname, it took forever due to the DNC under heavy load.

It looks like geekzone.net.nz has rights to geekzone.nz (and just noted that is you)

Yes, it is me. I wanted to keep it with the same registrar but it seems I will have to move somewhere else if I want to register now.

Could always register it under another provider and transfer it in?

I've been told this is being fixed soon - however we were actively sending comms to customers at least three weeks before this date saying that we were not going to be ready on the day.

Sound like that's working as well as detecting whether Orcon email accounts are still actively in use :-P




Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Metaname. What a bad first experience: you have to load your account but the pricing is excluding GST and excluding PayPal fees. So you charge $28.75 for the domain + GST and still don't have enough for a full year.

Getting out of there as soon as possible.

Likewise, A bunch of domains in IDM but no e-mails to anyone




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

You are the only person I have ever heard speak anything less than happily about Metaname. Their site clearly states that you need to allow for Paypal fees if you chose to pay via Paypal.
I have sent a lot of people to use their service and nobody has had a single complaint.




Ask me about Web Servers, Wordpress and the internet in general.

Yes, sure. But they don't say how much are those fees, so I put a bit more than I thought but it wasn't enough so I only had enough to renew for 11 months, leaving with a balance, which I don't plan to use.

Sure, could have used bank payment. Or they could have a total price including the PayPal fee, and absorb the costs, as many other business do, so you as a customer know exactly how much you have to top-up.

freitasm: Right. .nz domain live now, DNS working.

Once Orcon gets .nz support I might transfer back to have all under same registrar.



Seems "http://live.geekzone.nz" not working to redirect yet?

Was looking to limit the input to get straight here :D

what is the cheapest and reliable domain registrar?




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
