The simple fact is, whenever we sent one of our clients to the domainz site

Everytime without fail.
One of the important factors in choosing a domain name (or an email
address) is that it can't be easily confused with something that is more
obvious when you speak the domain name.
Thus both "domainz" is a stupid choice for an important web site, and
"4service" is a stupid choice for an important email contact address as

out, they try to go to domains.net.nz and send email for
If you total up the amount of extra help desk time taken up because of the
above, you will probably be surprised.
I'd prefer it if you kept to KISS principals.
How about adding A and MX records to the domains.net.nz zone so those poor
unfortunates than can spell correctly get taken to the D0mainz site anyway?
