ICANN (The International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has formally approved the new generic top-level internet domain designation '.kiwi'. This will be an alternative to the existing '.nz' top level domain designation. From around mid-August this year, registered trade mark holders will have a chance to register '.kiwi' domain names before they are made available to the general public. The wholesale price for each '.kiwi' domain name will be $25, and $2.50 of that will be donated to assist in the rebuild of Christchurch.
