Additional information about the .cn domain

According to the new rules, companies and individuals outside China can once again register Chinese domain names.

Registration of a .cn domain requires acceptance of many CNNIC registry rules, and registration procedures are frequently changing. The current registration rules are described below.

  • The chosen domain name must not contain words reserved by Chinese authorities, including geographical names, generic names of goods and industries, trademarks reserved by other entities, etc.
  • The registrant must provide complete and current data necessary for registration,
  • The registrant must read and accept all terms and policies of the CNNIC registry,
  • The registrant must comply with all policies regarding allowed content on sites hosted under the .cn domain,
  • It is required to host the domain on servers located outside the territory of China (the exception to this rule applies only in the case of having a valid ICP number),
  • The registrant must take full responsibility for any suspension of the domain name or other consequences related to violations of CNNIC rules,
  • Registration of .cn IDN domains, using the Chinese alphabet, is also possible.

Registration of .cn domains for foreign entities (based outside the territory of China)

The CNNIC domain registry allows the registration of .cn domains for foreign entities. Currently, to register .cn domains, it is required to provide a copy of the business registration or KRS entry in the case of business entities based in Poland.

Since March 2022, for each registration (for an individual or company) it is also necessary to provide a scan of the identity document of the person representing the registrant, listed as the contact person in the order. This must be a scan of an ID card or passport. We cannot activate the domain without fulfilling this requirement.

Registration of .cn domains for Chinese entities

Registration and transfer of .cn domains to an entity based in the territory of China may involve additional procedures and costs. Please contact us for a quote for such a service before placing an order.

Trustee service

In the case of maintaining .cn domains, there was previously an option to use a paid trustee service, under which the trustee was formally the registrant. In such cases, there was no need to send documents (copies of ID cards or passports) to China for verification. The client using the trustee service could be an individual or company from China and Hong Kong.

The trustee service is no longer available.

Other .cn domain extensions

It is also possible to register the domain and the domain, as well as the Chinese IDN: IDN .中国 domain.
