For those who may or may not remember me: It has been a while since I've posted here - probably 2 years since I've decently done anything here.

Anyway - I knew about .nz 2nd level domains being publicly open to registrations recently, and have an interest in a particular one.

I haven't registered domain names in New Zealand in years and so I would like to ask:


  • what registrars there are who are selling .nz domains, and
  • whether they have reasonable service.
Obviously it would be preferable to have reasonable pricing too - but I'm not overly fussed about that.

I'm sure some of you already hold .nz domains - so maybe something from your current experiences would be useful too.

I have only had good experienced with who I find to be very reasonably priced.

I have had the best experience with Freeparking, but 1stDomains are also very good, and are cheaper. There are cheaper places still, but I'm yet to have a good overall experience, so if you go for the really cheap registrars, I would be prepared to register then transfer.

I use 1st domains.

There are cheaper ones, but I as a general rule dont use businesses where their name is something to do with being cheap.

I use Metaname too, there are cheaper options but none have as clean ui for managing domains.

Thanks everyone. Went with 1st Domains - they were very quick to respond to emails (during business hours of course) and set up was smooth.
