Chinese Historical Figures 历史名人

I consider the following to be seriously impressive. I was amazed when I fortuitously discovered this yesterday.

I happened to look at the Chinese gTLD .网址 (website/web address) and discovered there are many (hundreds? thousands?) Chinese Domain Names of the form "Chinese Historical Figure".网址 (历史名人.网址) Here are just a few of them. The sites are in Chinese so I have also provided the relevant English Wikipedia articles.

http://杜甫.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Du_Fu
http://杜审言.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Du_Shenyan
http://唐肃宗.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emperor_Suzong_of_Tang
http://舜.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emperor_Shun
http://高适.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gao_Shi
http://陈陶.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chen_Tao_(poet)
http://于忠.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yu_Zhong
http://韩愈.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_Yu
http://元稹.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuan_Zhen
http://白起.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bai_Qi
http://苏秦.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Su_Qin
http://姜子牙.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiang_Ziya
http://吴起.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_Qi
http://乾隆.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qianlong_Emperor
http://顺治.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shunzhi_Emperor
http://多尔衮.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorgon
http://杨玉环.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yang_Guifei
http://西施.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xi_Shi
http://王昭君.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wang_Zhaojun
http://李世民.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emperor_Taizong_of_Tang

Yesterday, I also tweeted some "Chinese Historical Figure".网址's
https://twitter.com/andreschappo/sta...97757019123714
https://twitter.com/andreschappo/sta...13451039154178

Each resolve to a single page site which gives information about the Historical Figure. Within each page there are links to other Historical Figures.

The following explanation may well have errors/misunderstandings as my knowledge of Chinese is rather poor but here is my current understanding.

The above is part of an initiative to offer people the opportunity to register a domain name of the form "my name".网址. Basically the brand is the person. So, for example, if I were to register a domain name with my adopted Chinese name then I would register 小山.网址. The content of my 小山.网址 website would mainly be information about my involvement in Computer Science Internationalisation. Actually I would also have a section about Colour

Now, If one visits https://n.knetreg.cn/RJS-lsmr you are given the opportunity to enter a name. I randomly invented the Chinese name 王安安. The system then informed me that there are 4 individuals with the same name and it is not registered and gave me the opportunity to register 王安安.网址 and become "the unique you". I deduce that the system must have access to a database of people names.

This now leaves me with many questions and here are some of them.

How many Chinese Historical Figures have a .网址 site?
Who created the content for the "Chinese Historical Figure".网址's?
How many living people have a .网址 site?

I have raised this topic on DNW Domain Name Wire as a comment. Hopefully someone will know about these sites. See https://domainnamewire.com/2020/01/1...me-widely-used

Re: Chinese Historical Figures 历史名人

Previously I used https://lookup.icann.org/ which uses RDAP (Registration Data Access Protocol) to obtain registration data and this did not give me any info about the registrant. I have now directly accessed the .网址 whois and I do get additional information.

Below I take three of aforementioned Chinese Historical Figure".网址's and perform a 网址 whois lookup on each.

http://杜甫.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Du_Fu
https://knet.cn/whois?domain=杜甫

http://元稹.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuan_Zhen
https://knet.cn/whois?domain=元稹

http://杨玉环.网址 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yang_Guifei
https://knet.cn/whois?domain=杨玉环

The additional information I now have is that the Registrant Name in each case is 李珊珊.

A lot of examples, but most are forwarding. The register is definitely very actively promoting their TLD.

I believe this set of pages was a "public benefit + marketing" initiative by the registry KNET. Who actually wrote the historical content I do not know. Individual, Company? It is an impressive initiative.

Apart from those that have read what I have written, I wonder how many people in the English speaking world know about it? I have never found any information about this initiative in English.

Actually yesterday I remembered I had, a long time ago, bought a beautiful plate upon which is painted Xue Baochai 薛宝钗 and I tweeted a photo. I have now completed the equation by adding to my tweet thread the Chinese Domain Name http://薛宝钗.网址

See https://고.한국/plate for photo I tweeted

Zhu Tong 朱仝, Lord of the Beautiful Beard 美鬚公 http://朱仝.网址
Xie Bao 解宝, Twin-tailed Scorpion 雙尾蠍 http://解宝.网址

My compiled list is at https://schappo.blogspot.com/2021/08...ain-names.html or https://고.한국/water
