I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably know..
Seriously? that would be a hard life..
Back to topic and lets focusing on domains, .cn is one of the top 3 most popular ccTLDs in the world..
Google always helps out:.
- 314,000,000 results.
- 498,000,000 results.
.cn works really well but honestly it is not that easy for foreign domainers to invest in. You should know Pinyin .cn works much better than English dictionary word in Chinese market. That's why lots of foreign domainers are curious why there are so many decent dictionary word .cn still available (actually, after the 1.00 CNY/.cn reg promotion, not that much left atm). Issues always exist in all ccTLDs, not only in China. At least CNNIC won't seize 1 char domains from owners like .la does..
Frankly, there is only one thing does let me down, some of .cn domainers regged lots of Trademarked domains and take this as their domaining strategy..
PS. I will fly back to my home country next week for holiday, and welcome to China.
Live in China for a while, travel to China, get to know some Chinese friend in real life, these would be the best ways to put down your bias..
BTW: Please ignore most parts of OP's thread. It mostly like a standard spam...
Well I was obviously referring to HostGator names, as I realize that most everything in the world is made in China..
And I don't feel that I have a bias. As I stated, I have absolutely nothing against the people of China. Just that from an investment standpoint, it doesn't seem like a stable situation that I would want to get involved with...
Frankly speaking,you are right,but cn domians are such huge a goldmine,you cant miss it..
When you live in china ,you will find the chinese government is so wired that you wont believe what you said..
