CN domain: new registrations only possible for companies with an office in China (at domaindiscount24.com)
Today I received an email from domaindiscount24.com. This email includes the new .cn domain registration rules for oversea registrars (I copied bellow this portion of email).
I have one .cn domain only, wifihotspot.cn, but I registered this domain at name.com. So I must go to name.com asking how will this issue affect my.cn domain renew. I will post the answer.
CNNIC, the registry of the Chinese ccTLD .CN, has again changed their
registration rules for oversea registrars: only oversea multinational
entities with a Chinese branch are allowed to register .CN domains. This
affects new registrations.
Who may register?
International companies, enterprises and organizations that operate a wholly
owned or share controlling entity in China, including a branch, a subsidiary
or a representative office with same “name” as the parent entity.
The person / employee submitting the application on behalf of the registrant
(the entity), must be a Chinese citizen and must have a valid personal ID of
the People’s Republic of China.
In order to register a .CN domain three documents have to be submitted:
- the original application form of CNNIC stamped with business seal of the
- company business license (photocopy)
- registrant ID (photocopy) of the person submitting the application on behalf
of the company
