About Us

Company Overview

Discount Domains was established in 2003 following the deregulation of the New Zealand domain name market to offer discounted domain name services to businesses and consumers. Since then Discount Domains has grown to become one of the largest domain name registrars in the country. In 2014 Discount Domains added hundreds of new domain name extensions to allow customers to protect their online identities across many countries. At the same time Discount Domains also launched many new generic extensions on the back of ICANN’s decision to allow new extensions.

Discount Domains operates out of a number of data centres in New Zealand and Australia to ensure that your web hosting accounts achieve uptime rates that are industry leading.

Discount Domains is locally owned and operated out of our locations in Christchurch and Auckland. The business trades through a New Zealand company called Discount Domains Limited.
