What is a provisional registration?
InternetNZ has approved the new .kiwi.nz domain name, but in order for it to go 'live' it needs to reach 500 provisional registrations within a month. Therefore, your registration will be a provisional registration and initially registered for only 1 month. A provisional registration is registered to you, but it's not an active domain name. As soon as 500 domains are reached, the new extension will go live and your provisional registration will turn into a proper live registration registered for the full term that you paid for.
What if 500 domains are not reached?
We think 500 domains will be reached, so we're offering 1 year registrations as a minimum, even though provisional registrations are for 1 month. If .kiwi.nz goes live, we'll automatically extend your new .kiwi.nz domain name for the full term you purchased. If it doesn't go live, we'll refund your full term, less 1 month ($1.79 + GST) Unfortunately the .nz Registry will not refund Registrars for the provisional month if the new extension fails, so we are not able to refund this portion.
