I have just successfully ordered my surname for use!  I suspect its a domain 2ld that will take off.  Let the squatting begin!  if you have a buisness etc. now might be a good time to grab it.

I usually use domains4less, however they charged my card "Credit Card Sucesfully Charged" but got a php fatal error indicating the actual registration failed.  I used 1stdomains instead and it worked like a charm!

Anybody by some interesting domains?

I think many people are going to wait for .kiwi rather than .kiwi.nz.

Yep got mine




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

I had a list of names that I had thought of but all of them were gone when I tried to get them within a minute of them going on sale. My ideas were things like:

1
a
travel
sex
my
email
mail
nz
online
ima
shop

I see that one of my ideas is still available but I can't be bothered getting it now: proudtobea

I've passed, I personally don't see .kiwi.nz becoming particularly relevant.

Yeah, although we've got no idea how much they're likely to charge for domain names, they could go all silly and want > $50!

+1, personally i think its a waste of time, everyone wants .co.nz, its the name we all know.  nobody wants a .net.nz (therock.net.nz is the only domain i know who uses this).  .kiwi maybe, but .kiwi.nz wont really take off all that well (people want shorter domains not longer ones)

Grabbed my surname equivalent anyway, although I'm not sure what the uptake will be like either.

Missed out on what I wanted. Forgot it was happening then too late by an hour. The only reason I wanted .kiwi.nz was so when .kiwi comes out I could have had both as I am sure people will get confused between the two.

Which one do you remember

steve@email.kiwi.nz

or steve@email.net.nz


I think it has a lot of pulling power when compared to a lot of current nz 2ld's.  I also agree with an above poster who wants the matching .kiwi - together will be awesome!

if the user has to type in the email address and not reply or click a link, i suspect a lot of people will type in
steve@email.co.nz

also when going to the website, they would type in email.co.nz into the address bar (or just google it, which a lot of people do)
