Beijing: Internet Domain Name Approved

The China Internet Network Information Center announced Wednesday that the top-level Chinese domain name ".zhongguo" (written in Chinese characters) has been approved by the board of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a nonprofit body that oversees Internet addresses, information portal chinanews.com.cn reported. 

Domain names with the suffix ".zhongguo" in both simplified and traditional Chinese characters are ready for use. People can now visit Shanghai World Expo's website expo2010.cn by inputting in Chinese shanghaishibohui.zhongguo (Chinese characters) into their Web browsers. 

More than 90 percent of Chinese ministries and provincial departments and more than 95 percent of news websites have already opened their ".zhongguo" domain names, the report said.
