I. How to Register .CN Domain Name with NiceNIC?

CNNIC adopted more liberal policies not long ago, and now natural persons with mainland China ID cards are allowed to register dot CN domain names as well.
However, the regulation for companies/individuals from outside of China still exists. In order to eliminate the barrier, NiceNIC offer FREE CN Trustee Service to facilitate .CN series domain registration.

Let’s take XXX.CN as an example to explain how dot CN domain registration will go on for Registrants outside of China:
1. You submit the request of XXX.CN domain registration via NiceNIC.NET website and complete the payment.

2. One of the customer service staffs will be assigned to check whether you have already emailed us or submited materials(company registration certificate and/or individual passport in general) online for Registry of CNNIC’s authentication or not,
(1) if the materials were not received, XXX.CN will be registered with NiceNIC FREE + COMPLETE Trustee Service and activated instantly,
(2) while if the materials were ready, the authentication process would be moved to next step, and CNNIC started to take in charge. In most cases, this step will proceed on smoothly without delay, take 1-2 business days, and Registrar will receive the authentication results soon.

3. If everything goes well, we could move onto the final step; if CNNIC advise that something lacked, you would be notified by us to complement. No worries, we stay with you! 😉

4. (1) If you have no further plan to develop XXX.CN to a website but keep the domain in case other people grab it, then nothing you should do next.
(2) If you intend to develop XXX.CN to a website, you should provide us with the Host Provider name, IP address(es), DNS(es) in which you would host XXX.CN and resolve it correctly.

5. Done.

Why does NiceNIC Reseller Program try a prepaid system?

In deference to recent NiceNIC.NET clients’ request, we hereby make an explanation about why NiceNIC reseller program is based on prepayment, hope it would help a bit anyhow.


Actually, working on a prepaid system is beneficial both for you and NiceNIC.NET. Our prices are discounted, while the interests of domain name owners are incredibly high. By maintaining a prepaid balance you will be able to renew your domain registrations automatically and you do NOT have to concern yourself with losing domain names. For NiceNIC.NET this system guarantees continuity and less administration, which makes it possible to keep our prices low. Additionally it may also offer us the means to keep upgrading and perfecting our equipment and services.


Your deposit will never expire and there is no threshold for a minimal balance. You could use the full amount deposited without making a new deposit. However, we advise you to have positive balance on your account for automatic renewals therefore you would NOT lose any domains.


For more information about NiceNIC Domain Reseller Program, please kindly check OR write us directly at Admin @ NiceNIC.NET.


Your continued support and comprehension have been greatly appreciated!


All the best,

NiceNIC Team
