Go Daddy Stops Registering .cn Domains

cn_logo.jpgGo Daddy announced that it would stop registering .cn (the country code top-level domain for China) domain names at a Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) hearing yesterday. The decision came after the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC), which administers the .cn domain, requested additional information about every person that registered a .cn domain with Go Daddy in the past six years. This information includes photo identification, business identification and a signature, while most registries only requiring the names, addresses and e-mail addresses of people who register for a domain name. If Go Daddy does not comply with the request, the CNNIC informed the company that its domain names would stop working. Those that have already registered .cn domain names through Go Daddy will continue to receive service, but new domains cannot be registered.

During the hearing, Go Daddy also confirmed that it had been targeted by a several denial-of-service attacks that originated in China this year. Jones also claimed that many spam websites are hosted in China and that the Chinese government seems to be encouraging this.

This decision comes only days after Google stopped censoring its Search, News and Images results in China. Both companies were praised by the members of the CECC for their actions.

    For virtually any interview question, this tactic actively works to know what the way to go should be. Tap on the front in the guitar (The sound board) in many different different spots. This gage allows that you look at tracks and switches for proper sizing of one’s model train parts.
