.nz Registrations Hit 300,000

Media Release – September 26, 2007 - InternetNZ (the Internet Society of New Zealand Inc) through the Domain Name Commission is pleased to announce that the number of registrations of domain names under the .nz top level domain has reached 300,000.

Domain Name Commissioner Debbie Monahan says the rate of growth is showing
no signs of slowing, which is good news for the New Zealand Internet and the large
number of authorised registrars operating in the .nz domain name space.

Registrations reached 250,000 in October 2006, having
previously reached 200,000 in September 2005.

The average rate of new domain names created per month in 2006/07 was 7451,
compared with 6280 for 2005/06. Most of the growth has been occurring in the
.co.nz domain.

The .nz domain space has become highly competitive since the introduction of
the Shared Registry System in 2002 and there are now over 70 authorised
registrars offering .nz names to businesses and the public.


The Domain Name Commission is an operational office of InternetNZ (the
Internet Society of New Zealand Inc), the not-for-profit organisation
responsible for the .nz name space.
