7 January 2014
On the same day as .WIEN, the following 5 other new extensions were delegated into the root: .KIWI (intended for the New Zealand community), .WANG (transliteration of the Chinese 网 meaning "web"), .中文网 ("network" in Chinese), .我爱你 ("I love you" in Chinese), and .集团 ("group" in Chinese).
The new extensions .WANG, .我爱你 and .集团 are related to the same company, Zodiac Holdings Limited (http://zodiacregistry.com). That company, dedicated to serving the Chinese speaking community, has applied for 15 new TLDs, most of them in Chinese.
The peculiarity of .KIWI is that a percentage of each domain name sold under that extension will be donated to help in the reconstruction of the city of Christchurch (New Zealand) devastated by two deadly earthquakes in 2010 and 2011.
.中文网 ("network" in Chinese) is the second (and last) extension of the company TLD Registry (http://internetregistry.info/) to be delegated into the root. The first one was .在线 ("online" in Chinese). The launch of its Sunrise remains to be announced.
