The .CN Registry, CNNIC announced a new policy this week that makes it easier for non-China registrants to register .cn domain names.
According to the new policy from CNNIC, for newly registered domain names via oversea registrars and by oversea companies which have a branch in mainland China, the requirement of submitting MIIT ICP recording number can be exempted under the circumstances listed below:
1) For non website usage purpose. Customer needs to submit “the letter of commitment of the usage of domain name for non website purpose”.
2) Website server not in Mainland China. Customer needs to submit “the letter of commitment of the usage of domain name for website whose server is not based in mainland China”.
The letter of commitment should be submitted to email@example.com. After the name passes the CNNIC audit process, the domain name will start to resolve normally.
Interested registrants can download the CNNIC Letter of Commitment from EnCirca’s .CN webpage.
