The Great .kiwi Domain Name Auction

The Great .kiwi Domain Name Auction


7 March 2014 – OnlyDomains.com is giving regular Kiwis one of the first opportunities to purchase some of the most sought after .kiwi domain names.

From today until the 17th of March OnlyDomains.com are auctioning more than 100 sought-after domain names on Trade Me. These are all being auctioned off at either a dollar reserve, or significantly below market value.

As a Kiwi company, OnlyDomains.com are very excited to give other New Zealanders the first bite of the cherry, and expect fierce bidding to reflect Kiwis pride at being able to say “This is who I am.”

The auctions will be open for approximately 72 hours and have been split into five categories. The first set of domain names for sale will be names such as roberts.kiwi and mum.kiwi. This will be followed by technology themed domain names, then business, Kiwiana and food, and finally tourism.

From dairyfarms.kiwi to jones.kiwi and awesome.kiwi to aucklandhotels.kiwi, there is something for everyone.

Tim Johnson, CEO of Dot Kiwi, says “The first wave of .kiwi domain names are set to come online on March 18th, so the people and organisations that purchase these domain names will lead the way for New Zealand’s internet evolution.”

.kiwi is for people and businesses wanting to associate with New Zealand’s culture. It offers greater choice, branding creativity and the opportunity to differentiate your business from competitors.
