RSS Subscribe .kiwi.nz domains will be available from the 11 September 2012
Posted on 30/08/12 02:42PM

.kiwi.nz domains will be available for registration through our Lounge Network Domain Manager from the afternoon of 11 September 2012. They can be registered from this date though our Domain Manager system at www.domains.loungenetwork.co.nz

Please note that there is a 500 domain threshold before their .kiwi.nz domains will be be delegated to DNS during the provisional registration phase. This basically means that .kiwi.nz domains wont work until they hit the 500 threshold. So if they don't reach that threshold, they won't be delegated.

RSS Subscribe New .kiwi.nz domain extension approved
Posted on 24/08/12 04:20PM

The .kiwi.nz domain has been approved by internet NZ, and will be available for pre registration from 10am on Tuesday, 11 September 2012. All going well it should be available to the general public shortly after this from inside our Domain Manager system at http://www.domains.loungenetwork.co.nz. However according to the media release, there is a 500 minimum registration threshold before they will be activated, so if that is not achieved, .kiwi.nz will not become active.

Media release from internet NZ below


InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) is pleased to announce that it has approved the creation of a new second level domain in the .nz domain name space - .kiwi.nz. This expands the range of choice New Zealanders have in the domain name market and means that people will soon be able to register personalised domain names ending in .kiwi.nz.

RSS Subscribe 3rd nameserver added: ns3.nameserver.net.nz
Posted on 20/08/12 09:34PM

We've added a third nameserver for users of our Corporate and Business Hosting plans, as well as our parked domains - ns3.nameserver.net.nz.

Any domains that already use both ns1.nameserver.net.nz and ns2.nameserver.net.nz set as the default nameserver setting, and are also registered with us, will automatically have their third name server set to ns3.nameserver.net.nz tomorrow morning (21/08/2012). If your domain is registered elsewhere you can add this new nameserver manually.

We do not expect any negative impact from this change, which adds redundancy.

Our Nameservers are as follows:
ns1.nameserver.net.nz 119.47.119.1
ns2.nameserver.net.nz 66.29.25.63
ns3.nameserver.net.nz 118.127.36.80

RSS Subscribe Lots of Updates to the CPanel servers...
Posted on 09/07/12 04:47PM

We have made lots of updates to the CPanel servers recently.

You may have noticed that CPanel now looks a bit different when logging in, and this is because the software has had a major update.

We have also updated our website builder software, RV Site builder, to the newest version. This is now at version 5. RV site builder is a great way to setup a free website in your hosting account, with no web design knowledge required, as you build it in your web browser.

We have now also added the option for full DNS Zone File modifications from inside CPanel, using the 'Advance DNS Zone Editor'. So if you need to make those changes, you can now do this all yourself using the self service system.
