    So that's a trap to avoid.

    Registerfly are doing specials all the time. Like right now untill tonight .info domains are 75centsUS. Most NZ Domain Registerers charge a little too much for a domain imo. I have seen prices like $27 when you can get them overseas for $5-11

    What do you want? a .nz domain name or a .com / .net etc..?

    If you want a .nz domain name check out: http://www.simplydomains.co.nz/

    If you want a .com / .net etc… then check out: http://www.godaddy.com

    Hope this helps & best of luck with your new website

    Yes, you will need a web host; there are many web hosts out there

    Here are a couple of sites that lists web hosts:

    http://www.hostinghub.co.nz/

    http://www.weblist.co.nz/

    http://www.netguide.co.nz/shopping/d...ting#listfocus

    On choosing a web host it really depends on your budget & where you want the server eg: in NZ / Aust / USA & what you need e.g.: php / ASP / CGI / MYSQL etc…

    I Hope this helps

    If you have any other questions let me know

    There is a free webhost in NZ called www.hostingdirect.co.nz
    You can try out with them and see if your website continues to grow then upgrade to a better host.

    If you think you may need support I won’t go with them as I e-mail them about a month or so ago with a question & I got a reply about a week latter!

    I've got 3 sites with these guys:
    http://kiwiwebhost.co.nz/index.htm

    They have a $1 a week deal that's pretty good.
    You get website + ftp site + 5 emails

    And they respond to emails within hours.
