You must complete real-name verification after you register a .cn domain name. This topic describes real-name verification for China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) templates and .cn domain names.

Prerequisites

Email verification is complete for the domain name registrant.

Background information

.cn domain names are the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the People's Republic of China. The .cn domain names use .cn as the suffix, including domain names that are directly registered at the second or third level.

cn indicates the People's Republic of China. CNNIC is the domain name registry that manages the .cn domain name system and the central database.

Real-name verification for CNNIC templates

If you have created a CNNIC template but have not completed real-name verification for the template, follow these steps to complete real-name verification. You can directly use this template to register other .cn domain names.

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud Domains console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Registrant Profiles and then click the Cnnic template tab.
  3. On the Cnnic template tab, find the template that requires real-name verification and click No audit in the Verified Status column.
    Note Make sure that the registrant email has been verified before you submit the verification information.
  4. On the Template real-name verification page, select a certification type, enter your certificate number, and upload a scanned copy or image of your certificate.
  5. Verify that the information is correct and then click Save.
    Note
    • The submitted information will be verified by a third-party verification authority. The verification process takes three to five weekdays to complete.
    • If your real-name verification information fails the verification, troubleshoot the failure by following the instructions provided in Real-name verification failures and workarounds.
