New regulations for holding domains from countries around the world.

New regulations for holding domains from countries around the world.

The recent policy change by China to require business presence for the registrants of .cn domains has spawned speculations that ICANN is preparing an onslaught of policy changes with regards to the registration of ccTLDs.

According to some sources, all such policy changes will go into effect some time in early 2010 and active registrants of such ccTLD domains will have to either comply with the new regulations or risk the abandonment of their ccTLD domains.

We managed to get hold of documents that describe the proposed changes for a number of countries and they are listed below – a DomainGang exclusive.
