China approves another new batch of new gTLDs

October 18, 2017

On 11 October 2017, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) approved a new batch of 8 new gTLDs for registration and hosting in China. The gTLDs are as follows: .FUN, .ONLINE, .STORE, .TECH, .WORK, .LAW, .BEER, . 购物 (.shopping).

Previously, Chinese registrars could propose the registration of these new gTLDs domains to their Chinese customers but were prohibited from activating and hosting them in China. Approval means that owners of domain names with the above extensions can now apply for the relevant local license to allow their domains to be hosted in China.

According to Chinese legislation, those wishing to set up or host a commercial website in China must first obtain an internet content provider license (ICP) from MIIT. Only Chinese owned businesses with Chinese business licenses and Chinese/foreign joint ventures (less than 50% of the shares in the joint venture must be foreign owned) are eligible for such licenses.

The latest approvals are good news for domain name registries still waiting for MIIT approval and for businesses seeking to increase their profiles in China.

For further information concerning the registration of these new gTLDs and others, please contact the IP Twins team at info@iptwins.com.
