Trends & General Information

The People's Republic of China has its own, very popular, country-specific top-level domain with the .cn domain. It is especially popular with companies that are primarily active in the Chinese market. The registered domains are managed by the "China Internet Network Information Center".

Unfortunately, not every Internet user worldwide can buy and register an Internet address with the Chinese top-level domain - since 2009, the procurement guidelines have been adjusted and updated by now it is only reserved for companies to buy or register a .cn domain whose owner, administrator and contact comes from China, Hong Kong or Macau. However, easyname offers you the possibility of a so-called trustee service - we register your personal .cn desired domain to a competent trustee in the People's Republic of China.
