All top 100 electronics companies in China are using IDN.cn domains

http://news.china.com.cn/tech/2011-1...t_23690264.htm

Not sure whether this is true. A good sign for IDN in China.

It is intriguing that although there are also a lot of Chinese .com used in China, no one has reported them. At least compared to Chinese .cn, there are much less reports.

My guess is it is because no one in China can make money from IDN.com. Again, that shows how the market and news are manipulated by business people. This is probably true everywhere. CNNIC does not make money. Registers do not make much money since IDN.com is much cheaper. Drop catchers do not make money because they cannot compete with other .com drop catchers. And finally, domainers in China do not make money because most premium Chinese .com domains are not in their hands.

Another interesting observation is that more Chinese brand and business domains are registered in .com than in .cn by domainers who want to make big money one day. Firstly, .com are cheaper. Secondly, those domainers may be afraid that companies can sue them to get back their .cn names, but not as easy for .com names. That left the companies with only .cn names to register. I bet if they know the .com are available, they will certainly register them, too. If they have both, which one they prefer to use as their main website will be interesting to know.

Interesting, thanks for sharing.

Wouldn't .cn be more used over .com because of .中国 ?

I checked if Gome, China's largest electronics retailer, had their idn.cn registered, and they dont. But somebody else seems to have registered it.

国美电器.cn

Didn't check any others...

It is hard to say.
The registration information shown by CNNIC only contains the registrant's name, who may be a representative of the company.

The domain name points to a CNNIC's webpage saying the name has not been registered or not reachable. That indicates it might be registered by someone else.

The IDN.com name has whois info hidden and goes to a parked page. It is probably not registered by the company, either.

.中国 will be an important factor. It is still a bit early to say who will win.
