What our customers say
I've used Metaname for years now. They do the service they specialise in well and offer IPv6 domain support as well as DNSSEC. When I contact support for any reason they're always willing to help out and their control panel is quite simply awesome to use in comparison to other domain providers. It's a zero fuss service that I can recommend to anyone at all from the most technically inclined to the least. I find the control panel easy for talking people through and even if it's not the cheapest domain provider, I feel it's well worth the extra few dollars per year.
Metaname was created in 2009 to provide a domain name registrar that just works so you can get on with what you do. Metaname offers many domain name services not found elsewhere in New Zealand yet is surprisingly easy to use.
Metaname is a .nz authorised domain name registrar based in Christchurch, New Zealand.
