Arrow Will you register Chinese.CN if the price down to less than $1? Ask for CNNIC

Hey guys,

To celebrate 2013 Chinese traditional festivals of Middle Autumn(September 19th, namely August 15th Lunar Calendar) and National Day(October 1st)

Registry of CNNIC is gearing up for Chinese domain name promotion of 5 CNY (Less than USD 1) Chinese.CN

As thread title stated, will you register Chinese.CN if the price goes down to less than $1?

Chinese.CN = (Chinese Characters).CN = 中文.CN = (Simplified Chinese).CN + Get (Traditional Chinese).CN Automatically for FREE

Any feedback/comment we can collect from IDN Forums would be immensely appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

It used to be that when one registered a dot cn one would receive all variants for dot cn, dot 中国 and dot 中國

Then CNNIC changed to 2 administrative bundles:
  1. all variants for dot cn
  2. all variants for 中国 and 中國

We recently renewed 拉夫堡大学 and we dropped the dot cn administrative bundle but renewed the 中国/中國 bundle which gives us

http://拉夫堡大学.中国/
http://拉夫堡大学.中國/
http://拉夫堡大學.中国/
http://拉夫堡大學.中國/

So if it is only the dot cn administrative bundle they are promoting then I am am not sure there will be much interest.

BUT if CNNIC promote the 中国/中國 administrative bundle at a cheaper price then that is of much more interest.

Even better if they were to recombine the 2 bundles back into one bundle and promote that at a special price.

at 90 to keep everything vs the $37 or so for the bundle ....very disappointing.

Re: Will you register Chinese.CN if the price down to less than $1? Ask for CNNIC

Unbundling was the worst thing CNNIC could have done.

The locals who owned the whole bundle have dropped the .中国 and retained the .cn, mainly ASCII.

A lot to do with the price of the .中国 and the lack of interest in IDN in China currently.

The purists,predominately non Chinese, have either renewed both .cn & . 中国 or just the IDN.中国.

On a slightly more positive note for IDN in China I am seeing decent IDN.cn/中国, mainly .cn,being backordered and caught by a few Chinese,mostly the same names cropping up on the Whois.

CNNIC has a lot to do for promoting pure Chinese domain: marketing, pricing reduction and maybe domain name forwarding/licensing policy change.

Hello 小山 (I still remember you explained to me why you chose "小山" while not "大山" )

#1 Actually, CNNIC does have a BUNDLE PROMO for .中国/.中國:
.中国 + .网络 + .公司 = 520 CNY/元 (Original Price 960 CNY/元, Saved 440 CNY/元)

#2 From my experience getting along with CNNIC in the past years, I don't think CNNIC will recombine .CN and .中国.

CNNIC made much efforts and invest much $ in mainland Chinese market and as what CNNIC mentioned at the 10th Annual Registrar Conference in Jan 2013, they might pay more attention on overseas markets in the next years.

Policy on URL Forwarding/Redirect of Chinese domain names, including .CN, .中国, IDN.CN etc, got already relaxed, URL forwarding is allowed but Registrars are required to supervise the content hosted in the websites. Website contents including pornography, gambling, virus spreading, heterodoxy etc. are not allowed as we all know.

Regarding to licensing/ICP license/网站ICP备案/ICP Records, it's actually not managed by CNNIC but MIIT.GOV.CN who is the "Real Boss" to decide all policies on Chinese/[Hosted in mainland China] websites/hostings/servers/VPS ....

㊀ Ah! Thank you! Timely considering 公司 and 网络 have been applied for in the new gTLD programme.

I have found your nicenic.net page for the dot cn promo https://nicenic.net/news/messview.php?ID=11728 But the only reference I can find to the 中国/.公司/.网络 bundle on nicenic.net is at https://nicenic.net/customer/pricing.php which is just the price list.

You are welcome, 小山!

#1 Exactly!
https://gtldresult.icann.org/applica...tus/viewstatus
42 .网络
103 .公司

#2 The bundle promo of ".中国 + .网络 + .公司 = 520 CNY/元" would be placed on the English version website of NiceNIC.NET as well soon after the newly-revamped version of NiceNIC.NET homepage being launched (scheduled on September 15th or earlier).

#3 You are right and right again!
NiceNIC.NET (current English version)
IISP.HK (previous English version)
IISP.COM (current Chinese version)
NiceNIC.COM (previous Chinese version)
B08.COM (Backorder & Auction Platform)

Sorry for the confusion, we hope to use the same brand of NiceNIC for customers around the world. However, Nice NIC is a bit hard for local Chinese people to remember and type, most of them are not sensitive to English characters tbh. So, we chose IISP, 4 letters, for mainland Chinese market.

#4 Followed http://twitter.com/andreschappo by https://twitter.com/NiceNIC_NET.
Thank you so much for the nice Tweet about NiceNIC .CN promo, I loved your twitter background of "cute & vivd & colorful icecream", can I call it "icecream"?

Yours faithfully,
Helen
