Register a .CN domain name and target the affluent Chinese marketplace. Local and international registrants can apply for a .CN domain name. When the .CN registry relaxed its registration requirements, applications for a .CN domain name went through the roof. In 2015 it was the third most popular country code domain extension in the world. China has one of the world’s fastest growing economies with the .CN domain extension being used by an increasing number of Chinese companies and multinationals. There are over 600 million Internet users in China. That's a huge audience for you to target with your .CN domain name.
Whilst registering a .CN domain name will substantially increase your audience and maximise your website’s revenue, you’ll also be protecting your identity. Registering your trademark in a country code top level domain (ccTLD) protects your assets and prevents your competitors from registering your brand.
The .CN country code domain extension is a clear indication of your location, to search engines and users. Your website will rank well in local search results because of this. To give users the most relevant results, search engines look for clues as to where you're targeting - domain extension, user's IP address. A user searching in China will see results that include .CN websites on the first page. Knowing that you're local, so using their language and currency, means users will trust you more. It makes sense, no shipping costs, faster delivery, and customer service in the appropriate time zone.
When you register your .CN domain name, you'll also get a free Alpha SSL certificate. It's the best way to prove your legitimacy and protect your customers' sensitive information. Classic DNS is standard and it'll keep your website running smoothly and efficiently. For that extra layer of security, we offer two-step verification to protect your account against unauthorised access, and domain privacy so you can hide your contact details from prying eyes.
Please note that whilst this domain extension is not restricted, the registry will conduct checks. Domain names will be deleted if they are seen to be infringing registration requirements.
Below are a list of the requirements and features for registering a .CN domain name.
