Does anyone know a of New Zealand based domain register who offers some sort of affiliate system specifically on .co.nz and .nz style domains?

 

Also they need to be competitive.

 

Can't remember who it was but was offering a percentage on domains that it was trying to sell for $50 odd. I buy my kiwi based domains from 1stdomains great company (less than 24 hours in support) They Charge the usual $21.50 plus gst Which isn't the cheapest but I am pretty sure they are locals. But they won't offer any sort of commission.

Freeparking have an affiliate programme from memory.  Not the cheapest on the block but excellent service in my 5+ years experience with them.

That's cool.  I'm prepared to pay for the high level of service (e.g. being able to get through on the phone in a short amount of time), but that's not for everyone.

There is very little money in domains and tiny margins, so freeparkings is probably about the best you will get, unless you become a registrar or similar yourself. Remember they still have to make a small profit, and also pay a commission to the affiliate. But you would need to provide all the end support if you were to become a registrar or domain reseller etc. For companies selling domains, it is more about the addon services they sell in addition to domain registration, which are higher margin.

Try https://1stdomains.nz/ Ive used them for years only fro general NZ domains. They offer email support that they actually respond to and on the very odd occasion I have needed any support it has been forthcoming. $21.50 + tax for a .co.nz.

Agreed, very little money in domains.

 

Gnfb, with my work we don't offer an affiliate type service for domains, didn't think the small margins were worth it for end users. (our prices are: http://www.ramsu.co.nz/domain-names/)

 

Private message me if you want to make us an offer on what you think an affordable affiliate margin is?

 

 

 

Otherwise your best bet on affiliate type programs is with actual hosting services, rather than domains.
