How To Save Money Buying NZ Domains

The quickest and easiest way to save money when buying a or .nz domain is to purchase multiple years upfront. For example buying through Only Domains or Domainz Direct 3 -5 years will cost almost the same as 1 or 2 years with some other providers.

Another trick is to use a provider rather than your ISP. Back in the day it was a matter of fact you would purchase a domain through your internet provider. These companies charged high prices as it was ‘convenient’ for you and them.

Nowadays you can use any company you wish and you don’t even need to host at the same place. You can have your domain with provider A, your hosting with provider B and your internet with provider C.
