The Changes 

Recently there have been some important changes for New Zealand domain names (or website addresses). We believe it is important that you are aware of these as the changes may effect your future brand security. 

From the 30th September 2014, "second level" domains like the .co in "" or the .org in "" became optional. You can now register website domain names with or without these elements.

This means that eventually most websites will move to using the shorter .nz domain names.

How could my brand at risk?

If you have had your website for more than 2 years:

  • You will most likely have PPR status (Preferential Registration or Reservation). To check the status of your domain visit  
  • This means that from now until the 30th March 2015 you will preferential right to purchase your shortened domain name.
  • After the 30th March 2015 others may purchase and use your shortened domain name. 

If you have had your website for less than 2 years:

  • Then your shortened domain name may already be availalable for purchase by others. To check the status of your domain visit
