Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is how your customers find you on the internet. Typically, their length cannot exceed 63 characters in total (not including extension), cannot contain spaces, are not case sensitive and use only letters, numbers or hyphens. They correspond to a series of numbers that act as routing addresses on the internet. Registering a domain name is the first step to take in getting your business online.

How do I search for a Domain Name?

Simply enter your desired domain name in the Domain Name Search above, click the Search button and we’ll recommend the available domain extensions for you. Our domain search tool will also suggest other available domain name extensions or recommended variations. If the domain name you entered has already been registered, we will list any available alternatives.

Which domain extension should I choose?

If you are a New Zealand business or your business targets New Zealanders then a .nz or suffix is the obvious choice. However, if you’re a business with a global reach or plan to reach the global marketplace then you should secure the .com now. Other popular choices include .net, .biz and .co.

Our recommended solution is to secure a mix of extensions (minimum of .nz, and .com) and utilise our free redirection service to redirect two of the domains to the primary domain hosting your website. Depending on business growth, in time you may need to register localised versions of your website name such as, .au, or

Do you offer NZ Domain Privacy Protection?

Free Individual Registrant Privacy Option (IRPO) is available for .nz domains registered through Cheeky Monkey Hosting to individuals who are not in trade. If your .nz domain name belongs to a business or other trading entity, then you are not eligible to enable IRPO.

This WHOIS Shield allows individuals with a .nz domain name the choice of hiding your address and phone number from display in a public WHOIS search. Your name, email address and country will still be visible, even with IRPO enabled.
