.CN Is China’s Domain

Written By: Tom

Have you ever heard of .CN? .CN is the domain name extension of China. It is China’s country code top level domain (cctld) .CN at one point was a very restricted domain name extension. It was only allowed to be registered and used by Chinese businesses. China changed the rules in late 2002/early 2003 and now .cn is available to register by any business in the world.

You can register .cn domains in the second or third level. This means you can register a .cn domain name in the form of “somename.cn” or “somename.com.cn”. The Chinese registry, CNNIC, does require that .cn domain names not be used for sites that have adult or gambling related content.

China’s economy is growing very quickly. The amount of internet users in China is increasing by leaps and bounds. China is quickly becoming a major economic powerhouse. If you have a business that would like to reach this extremely huge and rapidly developing market, a .CN domain name for your website may be a very good way to do just that.
