Big News out of China!
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has granted licences to domain registries .CLUB, .VIP and .XYZ! This is the first time non-Chinese new gTLD registries have received this important stamp of approval. Prior to these milestone licenses, .CLUB, .VIP and .XYZ domain names registered in China were not allowed to resolve (display content) domestically. Now these domain names are eligible for ICP (Internet Content Provider) numbers, which is a prerequisite for every website hosted in mainland China. MIIT approval for these registries will help spur the reach and popularity of these new gTLDs in China, but also their acceptance around the world.
Spotlight on the .ECO new gTLD
.ECO is launching in early 2017, one of the most anticipated new top level domains (TLD) worldwide. And being the only mission-based and impact-focused TLD endorsed by the global environment community, there is a lot of excitment about not only the TLD but also the registry company (Big Room). HEXONET has recently reached out to .ECO to learn more about their plans for their compelling TLD. The complete interview is available here.
