No other ASCII's yet.
The Registry for 在线 & 中文网 is TLD Registry. Considering they are a Western Company I am impressed with how they have internationalised their digital media. Here are a few of their i18n features I have noticed:-

㊀ They have English & Chinese versions of their website
http://internetregistry.info/
http://internetregistry.info/zh-hans/
http://internetregistry.info/zh-hant/
㊁ Good use of language tags in the URLs. Rather than using zh-CN & zh-HK they are using zh-hans & zh-hant http://rishida.net/utils/subtags/ind...submit=Look+up
㊂ They have all their Social Media buttons displayed on their website including their China Sina Weibo http://weibo.com/tldregistry Now this may seem an obvious thing to do but so many western organisations do not do this. Yes they will prominently display their western social media (e.g. twitter, Facebook) but many who do have Sina Weibo (or other China Social Media) do not prominently display it (or mostly do not display it at all). A good example is UK Universities, many of which are on weibo http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_6fab54120100vhyh.html If you go to their websites you will easily find links to their twitter/facebook/youtube but try finding links to their weibo/renren/youku
