Alibaba Cloud provides rich domain name registration services. You can register a domain name on the Alibaba Cloud Domains service platform.

Procedure

Note
  • If the domain name that you want to register has been registered, you can choose a domain name with another suffix for registration. For example, if the forexample.com domain name has been registered, you can choose a domain name that uses another suffix, such as forexample.net, forexample.info, or forexample.xin.
  • The procedure for registering a premium domain name is similar to that for registering a generic domain name. You can register a premium domain name by following the steps described in this topic.
  1. Search for a domain name.
    1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud console and go to the Domain Name Registration page.
    2. Enter a domain name and click Find A Domain.
    3. Select a suffix from the drop-down list and click Search.
      • If the status of a domain name appears as Taken in the search results, the domain name has been registered by another user. In this case, choose another domain name or suffix for registration.
      • If the status of a domain name does not appear as Taken, the domain name is not registered. In this case, you can add the domain name to the shopping cart for registration.
  2. Select a domain name from the search results and click Add to cart.
    1. Find a domain name that is not in the Taken state and click Add to cart.
    2. Go to the shopping cart, select the target domain name and registration period, and then click Buy Now.
  3. On the page that appears, add the information about the domain name registrant and confirm the terms of service.
    1. On the Confirm Order page, add the information about the domain name registrant by using one of the following methods:
      • If you have created a registrant profile, directly select the profile.
      • If you have not created a registrant profile or you want to add a new domain name registrant, click Create Registrant Profile to create a new profile. After you create the registrant profile, select it on the Confirm Order page.
      Note If you are register a .cn domain name and you have completed real-name verification for the registrant specified in the selected profile, no further real-name verification is required after the registration. If you have not completed real-name verification for the registrant specified in the selected template, you need to complete the verification as soon as possible after the registration. For more information, see Real-name verification for .cn domain names.
    2. Read and agree to the terms of service, and then click Pay.
  4. Complete the payment.
    Verify that the domain name information is correct, select a payment method, and then click Pay.
After the payment is completed, the status of your order becomes Processing. When the status changes to Accepted, the domain name has been registered.
Note Premium domain names and reserved domain names are more valuable than other domain names, and they are excluded from all promotional activities.

What to do next

After you register a .cn domain name, you need to submit the same information as that for domain name registration to implement real-name verification. Otherwise, the domain name does not work. For more information, see Real-name verification for .cn domain names.
