New .cn Registrations Suspended Indefinitely

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

We regret to inform you that CNNIC (the organisation responsible for .cn domains) has announced an indefinite suspension all .cn registrations from overseas Registrars, including our registration provider Neustar.

As a result of this action by CNNIC, we have no choice but to suspend new .cn registrations

Please note that renewals and transfers will continue to be supported.

CNNIC says the suspension will allow them to implement a better methodology to verify registrant information from overseas registrations. You will remember that in mid-December, CNNIC put into place new requirements for supporting documentation required to be submitted with new registrations.

There is no timetable for the resumption of new registrations. We’ll keep you posted as new information becomes available.

Important news about .cn domain registrations

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

Over the weekend, CNNIC (the Chinese Internet Network Information Center which controls the .cn domain) made an announcement that it is implementing a new policy beginning yesterday, 14th December, 2009, that affects all new .cn registrations.

Under the new policy, individuals are effectively barred from registering .cn domain names as CNNIC now requires a paper application which includes a business seal, company business license (photocopy), and registrant ID (photocopy).

More information:

At this time, we are working with Neustar, our registration provider for .cn domains, to determine the exact details of the new policy. It is not yet known what impact this new policy will have on .cn registrations.

For the time being, we continue to process registrations as usual.

We will update our blog with further information as we receive it.
