You should normally pick a domain name that closely resembles your company name. Short and easy to remember domains are preferable, eg use your company initials, or abrieviated alias. Leave the "Ltd" part off. If you are mainly selling to a domestic market, use a suffix like .nz for New Zealand.
If your target market is specifically foreign, register a .com .net or .biz address.
You can purchase more than 1 address for a website, however, it achieves little in the search engines. Search engine will tend to favour your primary name, and will ignore the others. Having more addresses is really only good for managing common mis spellings, or common aliases for your company name that people may enter directly into their address bar.
It is a good idea not to impinge on someone elses trademark. Use this great NZ government website link to search trademarks, domains and companies office in one single search: http://www.business.govt.nz/onecheck
Web hosting is the only other fee you will pay. Hosting fees are as little as $10 per month.
If you only require email, we have an email only hosting plan that includes 1 free webpage, for just $7 a month.
If you want to host your website and email elsewhere, then we charge $35 per year for a DNS only hosting plan. This happens when you provide us with a CNAME or A-RECORD change request. If your new web host is able to, you should consider asking for your UDAI for free, and transfering your domain to your new provider instead. That would be a better solution, but some international providers cannot deal with .nz domains.
If you cannot configure your DNS yourself, we also charge $30+gst support fee per request to configure your DNS for you, or to review a DNS configuration and fix any errors. If you want it done right, please be prepared to pay a free for our technical consultancy time.
