End User FAQ

Important: As of January 6, 2010 CNNIC has implemented an indefinite suspension of all .CN registrations from overseas Registrars, including our registration provider Neustar. As a result of this action by CNNIC, we had no choice but to suspend new .CN registrations. Until further notice, .CN domains that are currently registered can be renewed and transferred; however, new orders will not be accepted for .CN domain names.

CN domain policies dated August 21, 2015

Important: Currently, new .CN domain registrations through non-Chinese Registrars have been suspended by CNNIC, the .CN registry operator. .CN domains that are currently registered through Tucows can be renewed and transferred; however, new orders will not be accepted for .CN domain names.
