Well, technically the kiwi (small flightless bird grounded in New Zealand) does not fly but the new generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) .kiwi may get off to a flying start.
For those that do not follow the sport of cricket, the word kiwi is also the nickname for a New Zealander.
.kiwi launched its Sunrise on 16 January 2014, which will end on 17 March 2014. During this period trade mark owners from across the globe with a validated trade mark can apply to register a .kiwi domain name matching their trade mark, such as lexsynergy.kiwi.
.kiwi does not have a local presence requirement although it is focused on providing New Zealanders, New Zealand businesses and brands with a unique online presence.
