You want your website name (called your website domain) to be either:
- Your actual business name, or as close as your can get it. eg if your business is called Nitro Plumbing – you would try and use www.nitroplumbing.co.nz (or .com).
- Describe your business service. So if you are a builder in Invercargill you could use www.invercargillbuilder.co.nz (or.com) * as of May 2020 – this domain is currently available. This option works better for SEO purposes as people searching for a tradesperson would often do a google search for service + their location – eg search for builder in Invercargill.
- We recommend only using .co.nz .com .nz domains. There are a lot more to choose from but these are the standard options (and cheapest) in New Zealand
