Thought about starting a business in China? Better read the small print.

A new law under consideration by the Chinese Ministry of Industry is preparing the ground for extensive regulation of the Internet.

The law essentially seeks local representation of every TLD or gTLD provider, other than .CN and .中国 – China’s national top level domains.

“Internet domain names with access to China should be provided by domestic internet domain name registration services, which should in turn be managed by Chinese institutions.

Service providers that are not under the management of Chinese institutions cannot offer domain names with access to China.”

For example, GoDaddy sells .CN domains in Asia, but they don’t have a local operative in China.

The new upcoming law has the potential to turn China’s Internet into an intranet behind its Great Firewall. That’s a grand display of “Communist Capitalism” at work.

Not only we predicted the current state of the Chinese domain market, we extensively fought off an extreme, unsubstantiated ‘hyping’ arriving from sources with a dubious agenda.
