Didn't CNNIC shrink .CN by requiring paperwork and a physical location in Mainland to develop?

A major factor recently post the stupid 1 cent name sale. The main players now are the locals playing to a market that still doesn't know what IDN are.

A lot of mainland speculators got badly burned with large portfolios and few buyers outside of China and those inside that offer peanuts.Will take a while to see a turnaround.

Exactly!

The Chinese Government change a year or so ago, to restrict .CN registration, to ONLY Mainland China or Hong Kong "registered companies" (where a company Business Registration and a personal Government ID card as well, must both be presented for every domain name purchased), is obviously 100% the reason.

Given that .EU is open to individuals (and .CN is not), you are better off comparing .CN to .COM.AU or a similar ccTLD extension, where such restrictions limiting domain's to registered local companies only, also exists.

So no surprises lol

Cheers, Asiaplay

PS: I made a just over 1K USD purchase of fresh .CN domains a couple of weeks ago and got treated like an absolute VIP - lol
Unfortunately the poor registries are really hurting it seems, with individuals not being allowed to register .CN ...
