.cn is the country code [top-level domain] ( [ccTLD] ) for the [People's Republic of China] .

The domain name administration in People's Republic of China is done through a branch of the Ministry of Information Industry. This ministry oversees everything from telecommunications to broadcasting similar to the [Federal Communications Commission] in the United States. The registry is maintained by [China Internet Network Information Center] (CNNIC). The actual registrations are done through commercial registrars similar to other parts of the world. [Neulevel] has entered into a partnership with CNNIC to market .cn outside mainland China.

It is currently the second most common top-level domain, only after [.com] , but before [.de] , and [.net] , with over 12 million registrations.

Second-level domains

Like most countries, people can register for second-level domain names. However, there are preset ones for certain types of organizations and geographic locations. The third-level registrations were available before second-level registrations became available in 2004, and third-level registrants were given first shot at getting their name at the second level when this was opened up.
