Chinese .Mobile New TLD now Available – NiceNIC.NET

New Chinese “mobile” top-level domain now available to all website owners and operators

 

Afilias announced today the general availability of its first Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) at the top level : .移动 (.MOBILE in Chinese).

You can read the press release after the jump:

Global registry services provider and dotMobi registry operator Afilias today announced the general availability of its first Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) at the top level: .移动 (.MOBILE in Chinese).

Transliterated as “Yi Dong” .移动 is a domain name just like .MOBI, which also indicates a website works on a mobile device. But the .移动 domain is part of a new generation of top-level domains (TLDs) that are written in native languages rather than traditional ASCII scripts like the .INFO or .MOBI TLDs.

A Chinese complement to the .MOBI domain, .移动 is designed to let Chinese-speakers – wherever in the world they’re located – know that a website was designed to work on a mobile device like a tablet, iPhone or Android device.

“With more than one billion mobile phone users in China plus millions more Chinese speakers around the world, the ability to effectively reach the Chinese-language community is more important than ever,” said Roland LaPlante, Senior Vice President and CMO, Afilias. “By using a globally operative .移动 address, businesses and individuals can expand their appeal to this audience by reaching them in their native language, regardless of country, operator or device.”

.移动 domains can be registered for up to 10 years at a time. Many registrars offer website building, email and other services along with .移动 domains to make your online presence work exactly as you envision it!

The .移动 general availability period officially opens at 16:00:00 UTC on April 17, 2014. You can find a registrar for your .移动 domain at http://afilias.info/new-tlds/mobileregistrars.

Register Chinese and Hong Kong domain names at NiceNic as Reseller

Question:

We currently registered Chinese and Hong Kong domain names at NiceNIC.NET as a domain Reseller for our customers.
1. We wonder if it is possible to register domain names in the name of our customer instead of in our name or NiceNIC’s trustee service.
2. If yes, can we do this via our reseller account?

 

Answer:
Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you very much for the questions about Chinese domain registration and Hong Kong domain registration. Hope our response will find you well.

To your questions, please find below our answers accordingly:

“We currently registered Chinese and Hong Kong domain names at NiceNIC.NET as a domain Reseller for our customers. “
–> We much appreciate your choosing NiceNIC as your domain Partner and it is our BIG honor to have the opportunity to serve you.

“1. We wonder if it is possible to register domain names in the name of our customer instead of in our name or NiceNIC’s trustee service.”
–>
1) To be honest, we hope our customers can register Chinese domain names, i..e. .CN, .COM.CN, .中国 etc. in their own names, then we can exempt from the risk by offering trustee service under our own company name.
However, the policy set by Registry of CNNIC did not allow us to do so as a Chinese domestic Registrar. CNNIC set different policies for domestic Registrars and oversea Registrars, that is also the reason why oversea Registrar like *** can offer you Chinese domain registrations without trustee service required.
In a word, currently, the only approach for you to register Chinese domains in individual or company name based outside of mainland China and Hong Kong with NiceNIC is to use trustee service.
For information about how to register Chinese domain names in individual or company name based in mainland China or Hong Kong, please refer to http://nicenic.net/domain/cn-domain-registration.php#cnReg.

Nonetheless, it is easy for you to find the benefits & advantages to register Chinese domain names with NiceNIC.NET, please refer to http://nicenic.net/news/messview.php?ID=13435.


2) For Hong Kong domain registration, sure you can use your client’s own name, see the following 3 steps please:
1> Please fill out your client’s contact information by clicking the button of “Edit” next to “Contact: Domain Profile” in the shopping cart OR directly enter your client’s contact information if you use “Direct Register”;
2> Please fill in a number by referring to http://nicenic.net/domain/hk-domain-registration.php#reg;
3> Please do NOT select the option of “NiceNIC .HK Trustee Service Terms”.

If you hope to transfer the ownership to your clients for the registered .HK domain names from NiceNIC’s trustee service, please provide us with the scanning copy of your client’s company/organization business license/certificate (if your client is company) or your client’s passport/ID card (if your client is individual) by Emailing to support@nicenic.net.

“2. If yes, can we do this via our reseller account?”
–> Sure, you can, please refer to “2)”.

We remain at your service should you have further questions or concerns.

Kindest regards,
