Restrictions

.cn domain registration requires you to accept many CNNIC registry rules, and registration procedures are subject to frequent changes. The current registration rules are listed below.

  • The selected domain name cannot contain words reserved by Chinese authorities and, among others, geographical names, generic names of goods and industries, and trademarks registered by other entities.
  • The registrant must provide complete and up-to-date information necessary for the registration.
  • The registrant must read and agree to all the terms and policies of the CNNIC registry.
  • The registrant must comply with all policies regarding content permitted on pages located in the .cn domain.
  • The domain needs to be hosted on servers located outside of the territory of China (the exception to this rule is valid only if you hold a valid ICP number).
  • The registrant must take full responsibility for any possible domain name suspension or other consequences related to a breach of the CNNIC rules.
  • It is also possible to register .cn IDN domains which use the letters of the Chinese alphabet.

.cn domain registration for foreign entities (based outside of China)

The CNNIC domain registry allows foreign entities to register .cn domains. Currently, to register .cn domains, business entities need to provide a copy of the entry in the business register and natural persons need to submit a copy of their identity document.

From March 2022, for each registration (for a natural person or company), it is also necessary to submit a scanned ID document of the person representing the subscriber, entered as the contact person in the order, to the register. It must be a scan of an ID card or passport. We cannot activate the domain without meeting this requirement.

.cn domain registration for Chinese entities

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

Other .cn domain extensions

You can also register .com.cn and .net.cn. domains, as well as the Chinese IDN: IDN. 中国.

For whom is a .cn domain name?

In 2015, China was fourth on the list of the most visited countries in the world. Register your .cn domain name for your travel agency or hotel to promote travels to China. You can also choose your name in the .cn domain name and start your business today.
