Following a change in the Chinese registry, which is (in)directly managed by the Chinese government, it is no longer possible for us to sell .CN domains.
After an initial change at the end of last year that surprised everyone in limiting purchase of these domains to companies only, the registry has just added a very clear and simple rule: in order to have stricter control over the domains that are sold, they simply and plainly forbid new registrations to registrars that are not Chinese!

Gandi does not just limit its development of new extensions to European countries. If we get many requests for a particular extension and if it does not have major conditions along with it, then we will be happy to add it.

, depending on the type of the account. Individuals will need to provide their passport number; companies, associations, and public organizations will need to enter their business or association registration number.
.HK domains are available for €24 (£22, $35) excl. VAT under A rates. Note that transferring a .HK domain is more expensive (€60, $99, £60 excl. VAT) than a creation, though it adds a year to the expiration date.
