CNNIC .中国 (.cn) application promotion

CNNIC just started its promotion of national widespread application of .中国 (.cn) domain names.

http://www.china.com.cn/economic/txt...t_17740213.htm

Some interesting info from the news article:

1. 80% internet users can visit .中国 domains.

2. 94.35% of people who participated the public testing of .中国 domains say they would like to use .中国 to visit websites.

3. Large websites such as www.新浪.cn (sina.com.cn)、www.腾讯.cn (qq.com), www.人民网.cn (people.com.cn) have started using .中国 names. (You can use IDN.中国 within China, but outside of China, you have to use IDN.cn for now)

4. 90% of government organizations at province level, 95% traditional media websites (? not sure what this really means), more than 90% top 100 best universities, more than half top 100 companies, more than 40% top 500 companies all have their .中国 names registered (also in use?).

Interestingly, no IDN.com was ever mentioned in all the related articles. Go figure.

Re: CNNIC .中国 (.cn) application promotion

It is clear that Chinese government will make sure .cn (IDN) is a hit.

Prepare for your Monte Carlo resort, James...

It is a good news, but still a long way to go. Unless the government does something drastic, my guess is I will wait at least ten years to consider retirement. As we know, the name of the domain game is PATIENCE.

Re: CNNIC .中国 (.cn) application promotion

Yes, but even 10 years also is not ages in the hind sight, right! Mid-Late nineties, when internet boomed, seems like just yesterday. Most of those who held ascii primes then are still holding them and basking.... And those who waited for 10 years are now registering iregisteredagreatdomainnamebeforeeveryoneelse.com?

Nothing is more powerful than an idea (IDN) whose time has come.

And yes, Rome was not built in a day.
