Why is it not possible to purchase .nz domains? The only domains that are available are the second level domains (.co.nz, .geek.nz etc...).

That's how the domain space is divided... Unlike the US, other countries have Top Level Domains (TLD) and second level.

I quite like the divisions. co.nz for your businesses etc, .geek for us (how kind!)...

Oh yeah, I know about top and second level domains. I am simply curious if anyone knew why, like other countries, we can't purchase simply .nz (like .be, .it, .fr, .es, .de etc...).

I also like having the domains divided but I'm also a fan of choice.
