Sunrise Begins for Dot Chinese Online & Dot Chinese Website

Today, January 17, 2014, is the sunrise of a new era on the Chinese internet.

The clear leaders in new Chinese TLDs, Dot Chinese Online (.在线) and Dot Chinese Website (.中文网) are now open for registrations.

Our ICANN-mandated Sunrise period begins today. Trademark owners which are registered in the Trademark Clearinghouse may reserve fully Chinese domain names in Dot Chinese Online and Dot Chinese Website.

The opening of our Sunrise period coincides with an auspicious day in the ancient Chinese almanac.

According to Chinese feng shui experts, today is a particularly lucky day for launching new businesses. The ancient Chinese almanac was created around 200BC, and today continues to be an important guide to the lives and businesses of more than a billion Chinese people.

We created Dot Chinese Online and Dot Chinese Website for the benefit of Chinese people and Chinese language users everywhere. Our fully-open TLDs will support much easier and more logical use of the internet for Chinese people in China and worldwide.

Our domain names are also powerful new tools for industry, government, education and non-profits. Read about our Top 12 Reasons why our fully Chinese domain names are great for brands and businesses.

Our Sunrise period will run 60 days from today. It will conclude on Monday March 17 with a VIP event in Beijing. Following a 2-day quiet period, our Landrush period will begin in China's Macau on Thursday March 20, and our international live/online auction of premium domain names will occur in the Galaxy Macau the next day, Friday March 21.

The entire TLD Registry team is enormously grateful to the scores of supporters we have around the world. On behalf of our Chairman, CEO and the entire team, thank you for supporting a more Chinese internet for Chinese people. Today, we have all made history together.
