You can now officially register yourwebsite.nz if you already have yourwebsite.co.nz. But as of 30 March 2015, this preferential status will end and anyone can purchase .nz domain names. So make sure you acquire your .nz domain name to prevent competitors purchasing it.
The new .nz domain will align New Zealand with many other countries that have already made this change. It is believed that eventually .nz will replace .co.nz as the standard New Zealand domain so make sure you act now to secure your domain.
