Domain Name Registration

A domain name is your brand or name on the Internet. It is typically used for email addresses and as a website address (technically referred to as a URL) if required. It can also be useful for other internet services.

Technically, a domain name is just an entry in a database that shows that a particular company, organisation or person holds the unique rights to a domain name for a period of time. Inspire Net is a domain name registrar and can assist its customers in having the rights to a .nz domain name or a gTLD or International (typically a .com, .org or .net) domain name.

Inspire Net charges NZ$45 per year for a domain name to be registered to you. This also includes DNS services from Inspire Net as required – DNS services are required for a domain name to be functional. You can make as many changes to your domain name’s DNS entries as you like by emailing domains@inspire.net.nz .

Each unique mailbox associated with a domain name costs $3 per month. Typically each person that uses that domain name for email will have their own mailbox. However, each mailbox can have many email addresses associated with it.

Inspire Net can offer webhosting services to work alongside your domain name.
