The Domain Name is "com.com" (don't you wish you had it?) They've
just made a sub-domain with "download." just like you could 
create one with "download.teltest.com".

About "nz.com.nz" - legal. But available? Probably not. Newer
registrars have reserved all the 2-letter DNs and even a bunch
of 3-letter DNs. You could register "teltest.us" and then, on
your server, use "us.teltest.us", or current set up 
"com.teltest.com", or "us.teltest.com" - well, you understand.
