Required Documents

It is required to provide all the appropriate documentation described below with every .CN domain name

For individuals

A copy of government issued identification for the Registrant which must match what is listed in WHOIS.
(Example: Drivers license, passport, etc). In .JPG format between 100K and 1MB.

For organizations

A copy of corporate documentation that shows it is a legal entity. (Example: Articles of incorporation, business
license) Additionally, the CNNIC audit system only allow one page to be uploaded. They have requested that only
the first page of the license, which mentions the official company name be provided.

Verify Accuracy of Documents and Contact Handles:

When filling out the "domain name registration application form" please ensure that the following handles Owner
contact ID, Admin Contact ID, Technical Contact ID and Billing Contact ID are accurate and that the contact
information EXACTLY MATCHES the information provided during the online domain application.

Immediate Documentation Submission:

The required documentation must be sent via email within 10 days after registration request.
Failure to submit valid documentation via fax or email will result in the domain(s) being revoked.
If any domain is revoked refunds will automatically be processed.

Validation of Required Documentation:

CNNIC will review the documents, which can take up to 5 days. CNNIC will be auditing every document

Additional information

CNNIC reserves the right to do an audit of the supporting documentation and if the information does not

match what is listed in WHOIS, CNNIC reserves the right to suspend such registration.
Once a ‘Registrant ID’ is registered along with the supporting documentation, this Registrant ID is
considered to be ‘white listed’ by CNNIC. Future registrations under the same ‘Registrant ID’ will not
need to submit new documentation. This applies to both Company and Individual registrations. The only
documentation needed will be the Letter of Commitment for the new Registrations.
That online domain registration leaves the domain in a PENDING status until the documents listed above
are submitted and processed. If a registration is denied due to document invalidation, the ENTIRE
application processes must be followed again from the beginning. Once all validation of all
documentation is complete, the domain will change status to serverhold if the name is not recorded in
China’s MIIT ICP Recording system. In that case users should record the name with MIIT ICP Recording
system and provide the Record Number via email. We will then request the update of the status to OK.
Rejected registration attempts
If the required documents are not complete or contain errors or if the applying registrant does not fulfil the
registry's requirements the registry may reject the registration. Unfortunately, they do not automatically provide a
reason for the rejection to the registrar. In case that you need to know the exact reasons for a rejection please
contact our support. We will then contact the registry and ask for the reasons for the rejection. Please consider
that this may take up to 7 working days.
