A wider issue perhaps, but something that exists with the .com
How does one find National Car Rentals as I had to recently? Or
indeed anything with a generic name?
I always use google... it seems to work great. For me it doesn't
matter then what the domains are... google allows me to find the right
people with so little effort these days.
The restriction of registrations under the existing second-level
labels has no technical basis, given that most names are under co.nz
This presupposes having more 2LDs under .NZ at present is effortless.
I don't know the software involved, but perhaps there are practical
issues there such as the name-sever administrators having to
reconfigure bind config each time? One assumes this is effortless and
reliable, but it may not be the case at all.
Since all the existing 2LD .NZ name-servers are also name-servers for
.NZ --- maybe there should be only one .NZ 'zone' and the SOA gets to
decide and dictate the structure completely? No administration is
therefore required by Xtra, TelstraCLEAR, whomever.
