At 1pm on March 30th this year, that PRR status will end. This means that anyone can register the shorter .nz version of your domain name if you have not already registered or reserved it. There are some 370,000 .nz domains still in PRR status that will soon be able to be registered by anyone, including your competitors or domain name squatters who may charge you hundreds or thousands of dollars to acquire the domain later. We cannot emphasis how strongly we encourage you to register or reserve.
