    China announces 3 new TLDs
    posted by michael on Wednesday April 27 2005, @06:11AM

    ukryule writes "It seems the Chinese government has announced 3 new top level domains - using Chinese characters (seen via slashdot). The article is a bit sketchy on details, but it seems that it is based on existing IDN (punycode) technology, and is already widely deployed in China. The 3 new TLDs are ".公司", ".网络" & ".中国" (equivalent to .com, .net, .cn). Notable by it's abscence is any mention of ICANN ... it is unclear whether there been any discussion between the Chinese registry and ICANN, and how these new TLDs fit in with the existing root nameservers."

    I don't see 'em in the current root zone file

    I am looking at the current root zone file (2005042601) as created by the NTIA/ICANN/Verisign group, i.e. the dominant root zone file, and I do not see the mentioned extensions.

    What I did notice that is odd is that the .mil TLD still runs partially out of the root servers.

    I'm sorry, they said (even professor Qian during one ICANN public forum, I think) that they already have a IE plugin and they already get it installed on most PCs in China. Just read the link in the article :-)
