#WeChat .com : #Domain moves to a #Chinese Registrar as tensions continue

WeChat, the Chinese multi-purpose messaging, social media and mobile payment app has moved to a Chinese domain Registrar.

Transferring its primary domain, WeChat.com, away from MarkMonitor to eName is a clear demonstration of trust in China’s own ICANN accredited Registrar.

Two additional WeChat domains, QQ.chat and QQ.email are with a German and a Chinese Registrar respectively. China’s relations with the European Union have never been warmer.

Weeks of friction between the US president Donald Trump and TikTok & WeChat over alleged misappropriation of private information, have led to tensions and a presentation by Chinese media of the US as “bullies” and “gangsters.”
