You must complete the real-name authentication process after you have registered a .cn domain name. This topic describes the real-name authentication procedures for China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) templates and .cn domain names.

.cn domain name description

.cn is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the People's Republic of China. .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 authentication for CNNIC templates

If you have created a CNNIC template but have not implemented real-name authentication for the template, perform the following steps to complete real-name authentication for this CNNIC template. You can directly use this template to register other .cn domain names.

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud Domain console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Registrant Profiles. Then click CNNIC template. The CNNIC template tab page appears.
  3. Find the CNNIC template that needs real-name authentication, and click No audit in the Verified Status column.
    Note Make sure that the registrant email has been verified before you submit the authentication information.
  4. On the Template real name verification page, select a certification type, enter your certification number, and upload a scanned copy or digital photo of your certificate.
