Give New Zealand back "archie.nz"
Actually actually, why can't why have a simple .nz domain, comme les
Suedois et al, who have .se minus all the silly cruft in front?
This issue has been debated a fair bit in the last month and once the
SRS is in place, there is going to be a public consultation process
next year on the issue.
I think it is fair to say any deleting of the 2LD structure would
cause some significant transition issues, to say the least. I would
predict a few dozen lawsuits :-)
Oh, and how was it that 'co.nz' was deemed
appropriate for commercial
entities? I was under the distinct impression that a bad sense of Internet
humour didn't exist in New Zealand until I moved here.
These decisions predate InternetNZ and I presume were made by John
Houlker after consultation with others in the early or mid 90s. The
decisions, as I understand it, was to mainly follow the .uk structure
except we chose govt.nz instead of gov.nz.
