NiceNIC Switch to Hong Kong Registrar Accreditation

Dear Valued Customer,
This is your domain Registrar/Parter of NiceNIC.NET, we sincerely apologize for the trouble and inconvenience that you are undergoing.
You might have noticed the Chinese government’s requirements of real name verification on all gTLDs and new gTLDs including .COM/.NET, .BIZ, INFO, .Mobi etc.:
Verisign signs deal with China’s CNNIC for real name verification
China’s Real Name Verification Requirements Are Finally Enabled for .COM Domains
However, we have lots of customers from outside of mainland China, for example you,  who can’t provide local mainland Chinese materials to match the required real name verification, and are confronted with the situation that your domain names were suspended or will be suspended compulsorily by the Registries.
To cope with the predicament, we applied for another Registrar accreditation with ICANN as of Dec 2016, the application of our new Registrar accreditation was approved by ICANN on 14 June, 2017, the new Registrar is based on our Hong Kong company, also the right company behind our English version website http://www.nicenic.net, the full name of our Hong Kong company is NICENIC INTERNATIONAL GROUP CO., LIMITED, the GURID/IANA/RADAR ID of our new Regsitrar is 3765, please refer to https://www.icann.org/registrar-reports/accredited-list.html:

Before we got the new Registrar accreditation, your domain names were registered with our first Registrar, namely GuangDong NaiSiNiKe Information Technology Co Ltd, a mainland China company. In the next few days, we will complete the new registrar’s .com/.net, .org, .biz, .info, .mobi etc domain names’ OTE testing. Now, we request you to transfer the suspended domain names to our new Registrar to keep off the real name verification and domain suspension. When we complete the OTE testing, we will inform you again if you permit.
The domain transfers would be instant and very convenient, but per ICANN’s policy, you would be required to pay for one-year renewal fee, the transfer process is same as usual way, please visit http://nicenic.net/domain/transferm.php.
If we can figure out better solutions to solve the issue and not let you transfer and renew domain names, we will do. Unfortunately, we are very sorry that we can’t find a better solution.
Your patience, understanding and support will be greatly appreciated.
Kindest regards,

Official data show effects of Chinese domain investment bonanza

What happened in December, the one year anniversary of the Chinese investment bananza.

 

Official data show effects of Chinese domain investment bonanza - NiceNIC.NET

 

ICANN just published data from Verisign about .com activity in December.

 

This was the one year anniversary of lots of Chinese speculative registrations, and the deletions were massive.

 

eName had 794,258 domains delete. HiChina saw 532,231 names delete. 22net had 125,766 deletions.

 

These numbers were significantly higher than November for eName and HiChina, but lower for 22net.

 

Official data show effects of Chinese domain investment bonanza - NiceNIC.NET

 

Now, let’s look at how the registrars fared with new registrations and transfers in December:

 

Here are the top 5 registrars in November in terms of new .com registrations:

1. GoDaddy* 773,845
2. Rightside** 202,914
3. PublicDomainRegistry 137,593
4. HiChina 130,337
5. Tucows 118,476

 

Here are the top five registrars (open to the public) for net inbound transfers:

1. HiChina +29,012
2. 123 Reg +9,481
3. Epik +9,112
4. MAFF +6,983
5. Google +6,836

 

On the flip side, these five registrars saw the biggest net outflow of .com domain names due to transfers:

1. Tucows -27,143
2. eName -11,645
3. Web.com*** -8,450
4. PDR -7,850
5. Xin Net -7,076

 

Note that GoDaddy does not end up on the list of top losers of transfers, yet Tucows is #1. I suspect this has a lot to do with Tucows deal to sell expired domain inventory through GoDaddy. Whenever GoDaddy sells one of Tucows’ domains, the domain is transferred from Tucows to GoDaddy.

*Includes GoDaddy and Wild West Domains **This is prior to Tucows’ acquisition of eNom and includes eNom and Name.com *** Includes Network Solutions and Register.com, but not drop catching registrars.
