Chinese domains are now available for registration
As of yesterday, the resellers under the free reseller hosting program can register and sell the following Chinese ccTLDs: .CN, .COM.CN, .NET.CN and .ORG.CN. The wholesale price for all these TLDs is $44.50 per year. The default retail price is set to $47.00 per year (the net profit will be $2.50). The registration period for such domain names is between 1 and 10 years. For the moment, .CN, .COM.CN, .NET.CN and .ORG.CN domain names can be registered only if the registrant has a company with a physical office in China or Hong Kong. The registrant must also provide the name of his company’s local representative. We are working on a way to make it possible for anyone to register a .CN domain name – the domain registrar we are working with offers local presence services. This means that if you don’t have a company with a Chinese office, you will still be able to register a .CN domain, listing our domain registrar as your company. As soon as this feature is available, we will inform you via our blog. Originally published Tuesday, March 27th, 2012 at 1:13 pm, updated April 6, 2012 and is filed under Latest News, Domain Names.
