The relaunch of .公司(.COM) and .网络(.NET) domain names under the new gTLD programme
.公司 and .网络 will be relaunched under the new gTLD programme. .公司 (Chinese equivalent of .COM) is most suitable for commercial applications. .网络 (Chinese equivalent of .NET) is valuable as every internet user has a network identity. Standing as the most populous community in the world, the Chinese market is highly attractive. .公司 and .网络 are believed to capture high interest in the internet community, enabling businesses to benefit from the influential Chinese domain names. .公司 and .网络 will assist you to build your online presence with instant credibility.
Sunrise and Pioneers Periods of .公司 and .网络 domain names are opportunities for business owners and brands to secure their corporate trademarks and brand equity. These two periods are first-come, first-served, thus it is crucial for brands to be the first in their registrations in order to protect their online assets. Unlike prior Registry regulations, subsequent phases will be freely open to public for registration. Companies that wish to take advantage of Sunrise Period should consider joining Trademark ClearingHouse (TMCH). Non-Trademark ClearingHouse (TMCH) holders with relevant trademarks can also claim their registrations of .公司 and .网络 during Pioneers Phase.
.公司 and .网络 will be relaunched in four phases. Existing registrants can refer to the previous update for more details.
