Welcome to 2020! Let's start off our talk with one of the more fundamental concepts when starting up your website. Domains!

Domains are something many people need but hardly anyone talks about. They are pretty interesting, though. Which one to register – .nz or .com? What does the domain name market look like in New Zealand? What do Kiwi businesses think about domains, the .nz space and how they use it?

During this session, we’ll talk about everything domain name related, with a focus on .nz domains. You’ll learn why your .nz domain name can be suspended, how to dispute a domain name with someone else, and what are big no-nos when registering a .nz domain. Business owners and domain name owners would be interested to explore who actually owns their domain name and what it means to them in the long run. Developers could learn what’s the best way to register .nz domains for their clients.

As usual drinks and pizza will be provided.
