How Long Until China Confiscates Google.Cn Domain Name?
Wednesday, January 13th, 2010
The Google.cn domain name is in jeopardy.
If there’s one lesson learned about country code domain names, it’s that you have little protection as a domain registrant. With Google announcing that it will stop censoring its Google.cn search results, it is basically asking for the Chinese government to shut it down.
China can take a number of measures to block access to Google in China. One of the simplest steps is to just confiscate the Google.cn domain name.
Will it happen? How long will it be until China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) makes this move? Answer the poll below.
