What you should know about the .KIWI domain
The Dot Kiwi Registry is 100% New Zealand owned and operated
The .KIWI domain extension is a new generic top-level domain (gTLD) which will be released by the Dot Kiwi Registry as one of the many new domain extensions.
The Dot Kiwi Registry is different from the DNC (Domain Name Commissioner) who controls the .co.nz, .net.nz, etc domain names and who is planning to release the .nz domain name extension later in 2014. They are actually competing each other.
Anyone can register a .kiwi domain name (it’s not restricted to New Zealanders).
Pre-registrations for .KIWI are available now until 1st May 2014.
.KIWI becomes available for general registration on 1st May 2014 on a first in, first served basis.
