I use to deal with a domain service in OZ that I had a wholesale account with.
Anyway they have a deal going this month for $1 .net.au domains

Now you most likely need like a .com.au a abn number

If enough people are interested I will find out more and set something up

Details so far

I am in the process of setting up a site for .au's will let you know when it is finished should only be a couple of days

someone asked the requirements

 

The .au domain extension is a country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) restricted to use by individuals, organisations, or companies registered and/or residing in Australia. The .au domains are controlled by the Australian Domain Name Authority (auDA).

 

.au domain registration requirements

 

According to auDA's regulations, .com.au or .net.au domains may only be registered to Australian sole traders, businesses or companies. This means that during the registration process, you will be asked to supply an Australian Business Number (ABN), Australian Company Number (ACN), State Business Number, Trademark Number or Incorporated Association Number to prove eligibility.

 

Those hoping to register .org.au domains must also meet the same registration requirements. However, they are further restricted to only Australian non-profit organisations and registered charities. Australian associations, clubs, sporting groups, political parties and close equivalents may register .asn.au domain names, although such associations must be nonprofit.

 

.id.au is a new ccTLD extension specifically designed for Australian individual citizens or residents. This type of domain name must be clearly based on the registrants' name or nickname and photo ID is required for registration.

 

In all cases, the .au domain must have a close and substantial connection to the person or business intending to use it.

That is what .NZ domains should do too, then people know if they go to a .nz website, they are likely dealing with a NZ company. Currently it appears that there are .nz address usued by overseas companies, and they are using them along with NZ looking phone numbers, to make it look like they have some association to NZ, and people are buying from these online stores as a result.

I hav ebeen asked to register .au domains in the past by some clients for their companies . But as soon as I tell them they need an australian business number, they decide against it.

I see Crazy domains are selling .net.au's for 50 cents per year at the moment, although I doubt too many NZer could qualify.. They also have .maori.nz domains for just a $1 per year, or $10 for 10 years, which is perhaps more applicable for NZers.

I think some of the services are trying the godaddy approach sucker them in for the first year (like me :)) then make your money in the renewals.

Although the .net.au is a genuine special as that is the wholesale price

I expect they are losing money by selling the .maoris, as I believe the wholesale price for .nz domains is around 15 dollars per yearplus they have the other costs associated with running the business. So if they are selling it at $1 per year that is a pretty big hit to take, especially if you register one for 10 years. I don't really understand how they could do that, as once you register it, you can them transfer the domain away after 5 days to another provider.  I can't see any hooks or catches in the deal either.
