ʺ.公司ʺ will adopt the .CN Chinese table (http:⁄⁄www.iana.org⁄domains⁄idn-tables⁄tables⁄cn_zh-cn_4.0.html) and the .TW Chinese table (http:⁄⁄www.iana.org⁄domains⁄idn-tables⁄tables⁄tw_zh-tw_4.0.1.html). The two Chinese Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) tables adopted by ʺ.公司ʺ are formulated according to the process specified by Chinese Domain Name Consortium (CDNC).

CDNC was initiated and founded by China Internet Network Information Center, Taiwan Network Information Center, Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation Limited and Macao Network Information Center in May 2000, to coordinate the development, operation and management of Chinese domain names (CDNs), and promote the application and popularization of CDN. Until now, CDNC owns 21 members. Consequently, CDNC can ensure the full reasonability and authority of the formulated Chinese IDN tables.

CDNC has published an Administration Guideline on the two Chinese IDN tables (referred to as ʹThis Guidelineʹ) which aims to implement the scheme to achieve CDN and corresponding application services, conform to the technical standards of IDN, and avoid the confusion caused by Chinese variants.

Each CDNC member should comply with ʹThis Guidelineʹ to maintain the using habits by Chinese Internet Communities and their long-term benefits. In accordance with RFC 4713, the simplified, traditional and their corresponding variants shall be authorized or allocated to one same registrant.

The Chinese IDN tables made by CDNC should be amendable with the procedure described as below:

(1) Organizational applicant fills in the application form of CDNC Chinese IDN table and submits to the secretariat for application;

(2) The secretariat organizes the expert panel for initial evaluation once receiving the application, if approved, it will be submitted to CDNC assembly members for comments recruitment and further amendment according to the comments.

(3) The application documents after amendment will be submitted to the Board of CDNC for further review, if approved, according to the decisions, each consortium member will update the current table for registration system and inform Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) of releasing the updated table.
