Website Hosting & Domain Name Changes

Hello All

A couple of quick matters of which you need to be aware...  

Server Maintenance

On 7th November our Web Server will be shut down for a brief period between the hours of 5.00pm & 6.30pm while we apply an upgrade to the processing power which will ensure that we can continue to provide the current speeds on the Server.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause but we’re sure that you will understand that upgrades are necessary from time to time in order to maintain continuity of service.  

New .NZ Domain Names

Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of talk about the new domain names that are being introduced to New Zealand. The availability of names ending in .CO.NZ was running out & some alternative needed to be found.

The new .NZ Domain Names add to (not replace) the existing domain names which means that there are now more opportunities for people wishing to register a domain name in New Zealand.

Many of our customers have decided to protect their Brand &/or keywords by also registering the .NZ version of their existing domain name. Existing owners of .CO.NZ domain names have privileged rights to register the .NZ Version but this only extends to 31/3/15, so we urge you to consider your options as soon as possible.

If you want to discuss how this affects your business please do not hesitate to call.
