Chinese Domains

Msg#: 4161462 posted 5:19 pm on Jun 29, 2010 (gmt 0)

So, I'm currently designing a website for a company, and we were wondering if it is okay to have a chinese domain -- are there any rules that I should be aware of?

The url will consist of chinese characters and then .com, NOT .cn or .com.tw or anything else.

Can I go ahead and register it?

I'm using [101domain.in...] to register this domain.

The website that I'm creating will allow its viewers to switch between Chinese and English. The Chinese URL, as well as a few other urls, will be parked domains, in the sense that they will be redirected to one page....

I just want to make sure that I don't do anything illegal and that I follow all of the rules....

Thanks :)

(by the way, I read the following thread, but it is 9 years old now, so I'm assuming that it's not quite up-to-date...http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum32/6.htm)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld cynthiajwlx.

That thread you're referencing is quite old. You can use the search function of the site and limit your results to something more recent.

If you host the site in mainland China then you need to apply for an ICP license. There are new regulations for .cn names, as there's been a recent crackdown [webmasterworld.com]. However, that wouldn't impact a .com registration.
