Before becoming a registrar for Dot Chinese Online ( .在线 ) and Dot Chinese Website ( .中文网 ), you must be accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Once you are ICANN accredited, you can start the registration accreditation process with TLD Registry.

Afilias is TLD Registry's back-end provider, so you can easily market our IDNs in Dot Chinese Online ( .在线 ) and Dot Chinese Website ( .中文网 ) using the Afilias Online Registrar Management System (ORMS).
