General availability of domain names in Dot Chinese Online and Dot Chinese Website will begin on Monday 28 April, 2014, a highly auspicious date for “starting new businesses” and “grand openings” in the ancient Chinese almanac. The Chinese almanac was created during the Han Dynasty around 200BC, and continues to be an important guide to the lives and businesses of more than a billion Chinese people.

Minor changes to the go-live schedule may be required by ICANN, however TLD Registry is confident that the milestones will be achieved on the set dates.
