Register your domain name here.

Many customers need more than one domain name, and this is a good idea.  Different domain names can be linked to the same site using special code called a "re-direct".

Once you have come up with an idea for your business or organisation domain name, check the domain name below to see if it is available, and then talk to us immediately about buying it.

Manage your domain:

We can register and manage your domain name registration process for you, and also send you friendly email reminders to let you know when your annual domain registration fee is due for renewal!

When you register your domain with us - you still have control.  Friendly Web provides secure access to your very own account that allows you to search for more domains you might need, or see when your next account is due. When we manage your domain name then we can quickly assist with any problems that might arise.

Whether you want to register a new domain name, transfer an old one, renew your domain name or sell it; please discuss your domain name decision with us first.


A domain name lets people find your site, and you need one! Domain names are also called domains or web addresses, and ours is an example - webhostdirect.co.nz


  • If you're running any kind of a serious website or business, you need a unique name that people can associate with you and your site.
  • Having your own domain name for email is far more professional than using a free email address from an ISP or free email provider.
  • Using your own domain name makes your site and email addresses memorable.


Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose and get a good domain name?


Choosing a good domain name takes a little time, but isn't too difficult. Your primary goal should be to come up with a name that is memorable, ties in with your site, and is available! When people want "your site", "yoursite.com" is a great domain name to have. Today, when people automatically turn to the web for information, it pays to have a domain name that reflects your site or business.


If you have an established business and the most appropriate domain name is taken, consider looking up the owner using our domain search and making an offer. You never know - they may be willing to sell for a reasonable price.


If you're just setting up your business, consider looking for a great domain name and naming your business accordingly. Might sound strange, but it's a very good idea for a primarily (or totally) internet based business.


Is domain name length important?


Domain names can be of any length up to 67 characters. You don't have to settle for an obscure domain name like ybos.com when what you mean is YourBusinessOnlineStore.com. You're probably best to go for a shorter name if it's a meaningful one, but choose the longer name if it's easier to remember. However, avoid extremely long domain names!


dotcom or not dotcom?


A common question! If you can get youridealname.com, go for it. Consider registering youridealname.net also - you'll kick yourself when a competitor does. If you can't get youridealname.com, it's not the end of the world. If your site caters to a country outside the US, you may well be better off registering youridealname.co.nz - your target audience then knows your site is local. Of course, you'd probably be crazy not to get youridealname.com AND youridealname..co.nz -  if they're both available!


How much will it cost?


Domain registration is very affordable.
