No More Overseas Registrars for Chinese Domain Names .CN
Every day is full of suprises nowadays in China. Yesterday google threatend to leave china, and today we learned you can only buy chinese domain names (.cn) through a chinese registrar*. the China National Network Information Center CNNIC decided so...
1) Overseas registrars will be kind of angry to have this business taken away without further notice!
2) The ICANN will be angry, because don't forget that the chinese government controls the .CN... because the root database in the states allows them to. the ICANN
3) Most part of registrars within China don't have an english interface of their website... not speaking about an english speaking support service.
No worries, if you baught already your .cn through your overseas registrar before, you still can manage it through that company. It's just that you won't be able to buy new ones...
thanks to buzz and the city for the info ;o)
* a registrar is a company that has the accreditation to sell you domain names.
