Question 1. If you consider registering a .nz domain name in the future, would you like anyname.nz to be an option rather than a name under just the second levels, e.g. anyname.co.nz?

Yes
A second-level domain name will be the only option under which I will register a .NZ name at all!

Question 2. Would likely short term confusion over a transition period be an acceptable consequence for offering a long term option of allowing .nz registrations at the second level?

Yes

Question 3. Do you agree that existing .nz registrants should get a priority right in obtaining their name at the second level if this proposal proceeds?

Yes
That is only fair. But the period for this pre-registration should not be too long and after the deadline registration should be free without any more restrictions for anybody.

Question 4. Do you agree with the approach in the draft amended policies if we proceed with this? What, if anything, would you change?

Yes

Question 5. Do you support the proposal that a current registrant of a .nz name at the third level should be able to reserve that name at the second level for no cost if they wish to block others from registering it but not actually utilise it themselves?

No
nothing is for free!

Question 6. Is two years an appropriate time to wait before reviewing policy to allow a reservation at no cost? Should this time frame be longer?

No
it should be much shorter... this is the internet!!!

Question 7. Is two years an appropriate time to wait before reviewing the policy to extend the Dispute Resolution Service to sub-domains of second level registrations? Should this time frame be longer?

No
it should be much shorter... this is the internet!!!

Question 8. Do you see any benefits from allowing registrations at the second level which have not been covered in this paper?

No Response

Question 9. Do you see any detrimental effects from allowing registrations at the second level which have not been covered in this paper?

No
