additional Information


The .cn domain extension is particularly popular with Chinese companies, which use the country-specific top-level domain to underline the national focus on the Chinese market. The domain is particularly in demand with regard to the large population of the People's Republic of China, since local search engines rate the .cn domain very highly and a large number of internet users are addressed. Administrators have been able to buy or register the .cn domain since January 1990 - due to its age, the top-level domain has earned a high reputation that both search engines and Internet users appreciate.

Your personal .cn internet address has to meet some requirements so that you can buy it: You have between 3 and 63 characters available. Unfortunately, special characters are not permitted, but numbers within the domain name and pure number domains are.

Especially in Asia, there are many local top-level domains (ccTLDs) in relation to the .cn domain: For example, the .jp domain for Japan or the .tw domain for Taiwan.


The .cn domain is one of the most emerging and most used country-specific top-level domains worldwide. In addition to the American .com domain and the German .de domain , the .cn domain is particularly popular due to the large number of Chinese companies. In 2008, the top-level domain of China overtook the German ccTLD for the first time and recorded over 12 million registered domains - due to the stricter guidelines for registrations, however, the number of registered Internet addresses fell again.

Due to the relatively strict guidelines for the allocation, a large part of the attractive Internet address is still available. easyname enables you to easily and conveniently register your desired domain - if you have any questions, you can contact our support at
