Expert help to select & protect your online identity
Your address on the Internet
Your domain name is your address on the Internet, and Domainz gives you access to more than 200 different domain name extensions worldwide. Use our free search feature or talk to a Domainz consultant about the right domain name for your website.
Can customers find your website quickly and easily on the Internet?
Using your business or brand name makes perfect sense. But if your business name isn't available, consider choosing key words that represent your business or product. Purchasing your domain name as soon as possible prevents it being registered by a competitor or speculator. Consider registering one domain name with multiple extensions (like co.nz .com, .com.au). Or take a look at international domain name options like .co.uk.
1. Before searching for your domain name, ask yourself these questions
Is the name you want easy to spell?
If your brand name is often misspelled, you can simply redirect the traffic to your main website - e.g. vodaphone.co.nz redirects to vodafone.co.nz.
Is it short and easy to remember?
A nickname or abbreviation might be used most often by your customers e.g. amex.co.nz or coke.com. Sometimes initials will work best - like bnz.co.nz for Bank of New Zealand.
Is it easily differentiated?
If you don't have a well-known brand, or your business/product name is too much like another company's, a 'generic' address may be a good choice e.g. auckland-plumbing.co.nz
Where are your key markets?
If you have customers in specific national markets, consider registering domain names in those markets e.g. .com.au in Australia, .cn in China etc.
2. Search for the name you want
Use our free search at the top of this page to see if it's available.
Simply enter 'thenameyouwant' and hit 'Go!' If that name is already registered with a certain extension, our search feature will recommend other options available. To future-proof your online brand against competitors, consider owning a number of extensions e.g yourname.com, yourname.net.nz, yourname.biz
3. Choose the registration and payment method that suits you.
Do it online, by phone (0800 366 2469) or by fax/post.
