China is coming...

We are glad to announce the launch of .CN - the most popular and fastest growing ccTLD in the world.

The .CN Domain extension has seen an exemplary growth since its launch throughout the world. Earlier this year, .CN crossed over 13 million registrations to become the second most registered Domain extension after .COM. (ahead of .NET!).

You can begin registering your desired .CN Domains from 18th August 2009 onwards. Furthermore, these domain extensions will be available at a special introductory price of RM50 on Registrations, Renewals as well as Transfer-Ins - compared to RM100-120 (more than TWICE) elsewhere!

*Prices checked as of 13 AUG 2009.

If you're wondering if .CN domains are being actively traded at all, here are a few recent aftermarket sales in a recent week (July 27 - Aug 2, 2009) - data from Sedo (see more news below):-
  1. $4,830
  2. $1,440
  3. $1,440
In the case of "", likely in reference to a popular antivirus software, it seems to be not bad at all for a less than 2-year domain domain to fetch nearly 100 times its original registration cost.

So, start planning now for that domain to take advantage of lucrative, fast-growing China market - world's most populous nation, with biggest number of Internet users to-date! While one may not be interested in doing business in China now, it could be wise to protect one's brand today, and SAVE, should the decision to expand/enter into China arise several years from now.

DOUBLE BONUS: Get 20% rebate (maximum RM52) for .CN domains and all other products throughout store (for items not marked on sale), during Merdeka Mega Sale Month until 31 AUG 2009.

Also, in addition to recently made available Free DNS, Domain FORWARDING is also now FREE, so you can start using all domains immediately.

BTW, domains for other highly populous nations, .IN and .UK, as well as .MOBI and .INFO are still on sale - from just RM20!

Hot phrases for that new domain!
