.CN TLD registrations temporarily disabled
We have recently been informed by both eNom and Instra, the domain name registrars we are working with, that they are no longer accepting registration requests for the .CN TLD, as well as for its derivatives – .COM.CN, .NET.CN and .ORG.CN. The reason for this is a new policy for the provision of WHOIS details enforced by the CNNIC. The explanation from CNNIC states that they want to enhance the authenticity, accuracy and integrity of the domain name information provided for new domain name registrations. For the moment, this affects only new domain owners – all renewals of .CN domain names will go without problems. There is no information as for how long this suspension will continue. As soon as we have new information on the subject, we will let you know. Originally published Thursday, January 14th, 2010 at 9:49 am, updated January 14, 2010 and is filed under Domain Names.
