Labeled as domains in Domain Industry News started by News, Apr 15, 2016.
I can see the logic, but you have got to be insane. You pretty much cut out the rest of the world as potential customers. There is also the issue of how easy it might be to transfer away.
If you listen to the doom and gloom of the Chinese economy. Where are the buyers coming from?
Would you transfer your domains to a cheap, Chinese registrar?
Depends, If registrar is reputed and offer cheap registration fees, than maybe yes.
In pursuit of a cent can lose a dollar ... and much more
What is the point?
I would not.
Without even reading the story I can say hells no.
only my least valued domains. and even those under heavily discounted or free promo.
sadly, it appears they want the exact opposite.. of our least valued domains.
so the answer is NO. and NO. and NO.
but thanks anyway.
Most people here wouldn't have a clue if their domain gets seized on an oblique homophonic pun that carried a flash in the pan's worth of political significance, so why would anyone put themselves in that situation?
domain cn is the most important domain name forum in china just like namepros.
Just want to welcome @GuoYongan to Namepros. 欢迎参加我们的论坛。
If I own the registrar in China, then yes.
thank you very much.
A friend of mine is getting tons of problems just now, because of using one of these cheap registrars.
Pretty much like 1&1.
If they have English interface, proper support, large auction and plenty of Chinese customers, but at the same time will make sure that non-Chinese are treated the right way I can think about it.
Must be large and respected International company though, not Ename-like, that is hard to navigate, register, etc, etc,..
Price is not #1 factor for many, reputation and trust is. And those things cost more than $1 transfers.
What about internet connectivity with Chinese servers?
As for me (from Ukraine) - is very slow or even absent periodically...
My friend from London has the same issue...
The point is that they are not cheaper. Bigger firms, including Chinese can beat them on price. If you want to compare registration/renewal/transfer prices, check out Registra.rs.
Simply put why take the risk?
Your domains are assets, protect them at all costs.
If the domains get stolen would you trust the registrar to have your back?
I will transfer all my domains to China, only if am Chinese or living in China and have local clients, still then i might just go with any of the big registers IMO
I have tried i can say there is too much hassle..
When you factor in the risk vs. reward, it just doesn't make since to put your domains at risk. When you have mainstream domain registrars offering .COM's for about $10 a year (I personally like Name.com because you can use "PRIVACYPLEASE" coupon at checkout for free Whois privacy) there's no point in risking a foreign registrar with your investments. If you're looking for cheaper domains I know a lot of people at NamePros use either NameBright.com or NameSilo.com to get .COM's for around $8.30 which is about as cheap as you're going to find considering that's right about the price point ICANN and registrars have to pay to request a .COM from the registry.
