There are 360 000 domain names ending in .nz, one for every 11 New Zealanders. Last week's re-branding raised awareness of the newer 2nd level domain names (SLD's) in NZ such as .geek.nz, and .maori.nz by the Domain Name Commission; mentioned was the new SLD .health.nz which the Domain Name Commissioner Debbie Monahan explains in this video is a "moderated second level domain name" meaning organisations must apply and be approved for using the .health.nz domain.

The NZ Domain Name Commission regulates the New Zealand domain name space including issuing the UDAI key used for seamlessly transferring your domain name to a different registrar in New Zealand, and can approve requests for new second level domain names.
