This is a frequently asked question, now we wanna post an answer publicly for your information.
Why can’t I change the nameservers of my Chinese domain names(.CN, .COM.CN, .中国 etc.) to my customized nameservers but only got the error report of “Nameserver update failed”? (OR similar expression)
Thank you for the question.
Sorry for the inconvenience. However, Registry of CNNIC set some limits to all Chinese domains’ nameserver update for the sake of security. Only the nameservers recognized by CNNIC can be accepted.
Nonetheless, you can still took advantage of DNS Records and point the Chinese domain names to certain specific IP addresses or existing websites.
To create DNS records, please follow the steps:
My Account > My Domain > Manage > DNS Records
Please make sure that you would click the button of “Restart NDNS” to complete the DNS records setting.
