.co.nz is still quite an immature market at the moment (we've got just over 250 in our wider portfolio) but although it's a much smaller market than Australia, there's no reason why New Zealand can't start to appreciate just like the rapid ramp-up happening in .com.au names at the moment (though of course the relative sizes of the 2 markets will dictate comparatively lower prices in .co.nz)

After all, NZ businesses need to be online just as much as their counterparts in other countries, and a strong generic name never goes amiss, especially in the hotly contested tourism market where it takes something pretty special to stand out...

Thanks Edwin.

Yes, I presume there might be some half decent names within the smaller NZ market. And unlike the AU market, there aren't the same restrictions to ownership.

BTW, strong .co.nz generics get typeins. Not nearly as much as I expect the equivalent .co.uk names would (we don't have any matching pairs to test) but they definitely do get some. So there is a heartbeat of "background" traffic even before you develop a site.

I have to agree with the tactical purchase thing...sold a couple recently (only for £xxx) but their exact words were "that it was to stop their competitors from having them"....that is a tactical purchase right?
