TimeNet yesterday officially launched the registration for global Chinese domain name space in Taiwan. Users will be connected to companies who have registered their Chinese domain name space, simply by typing in the relevant Chinese domain names over Internet browsers. There is no need for additional software and procedures are the same as of English domain name space.
TimeNet has said that Chinese domain name system is a global service, which incorporates both the simplified and traditional forms of the Chinese character. Therefore, a global Chinese domain name can only be registered once, and will not be duplicated. To prevent cyber-squatters from taking advantage of this service, registration will take place in different phases, starting with the '.com' domain name space. Candidates must provide the company's business registration license to apply for a Chinese domain name space that coincides with the company name. Successful applicants will pay a first-time registration fees of NT500, with subsequent yearly subscription of NT1200 to be made in two-yearly payments.
