when your business market is or could be worldwide then purchase
a global domain name (.com, .net, .biz, .info).
EG: A lawnmoving or hairdressing business would be best suited to an NZ domain name whereas a motel or artist portfolio would best suit a global domain name. Often business that sell both locally and internationally will buy both a NZ and a global domain names.
If you've bought a domain, have you thought about registering
variations on it too? Purchasing different extensions or mistypes

domain name, and park several domains over the one website.
