New Regulations for .CN Domain Registrations

On January 5, 2010, the China network Information center (CNNIC) announced that all new .CN domain registrations will be temporarily suspended from overseas registrars from 18:00PM (Beijing time) January 6th, 2010.

At the end of 2009, CNNIC released more restrictive rules and regulations by requesting hard copies of registrant company certificates and signatures. The Registry has now implemented a new auditing system of all new .CN domain registrations in order to enhance the authenticity, accuracy and integrity of the domain name information. Due to these changes, some registrars have had to suspend new .CN domain registrations due to the difficulty this new process represents.

Furthermore, CNNIC sent out a notice on January 5th to suspend all new applications from overseas registrars. It is said that CNNIC is considering conducting audits on existing .CN domains as well.

At this stage there is no information as to when this suspension will end. Asia Registry will keep you posted with any new updates from CNNIC.
