NZ emails.?

Why is it that some overseas websites seem to reject New Zealand email addresses? I'm with Xtra but having filled out various forms get rejected when it comes to my email address? I wondered whether its because we're not '.com'?

Country code top level domains are every bit an "industry" standard as generic top level domains are.

Then why is Australia .com.au while New Zealand is .co.nz and the United Kingdom is .co.uk?

Surely if there was "industry" standard then Australia would be .co.au?

You appear to have no clue whatsoever about the dns.
The NZ domain namespace is not ".co.nz"
NZ is .nz
You can directly register at the second level on .nz
-- .co.nz is only but one choice of a second level subdomain.
Ditto for oz and pommyland.

The standard is the .au or .nz part. Each country decides which second level domains should be available under their tld

gyro: here = current top level domains
