Abstract:

Whether a domain name can be accessed normally in China is not determined by the domain suffix but by the hosting infrastructure you choose. In fact, if you use .ai domain names or other international domain names,

In recent years, .ai domain names have garnered significant attention, with many people predicting that AI will be one of the hottest industries in the next 10 years. For those who have already started registering .ai domain names, a common question is: Can .ai domain names be registered in China, and can they be accessed normally?

Does AI domain name need to be filed in the country?Can it be visited normally?

1. What are the requirements for domain registration in China?

- Servers and hosting infrastructure must be located within China.

- The domain name bound to the server and hosting infrastructure must have received approval from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and must have undergone real-name verification. Specific information about which domain names can be registered can be found on the official MIIT website.

It's important to note that .ai domain names belong to country-code top-level domains (ccTLD) and are associated with the nation of Anguilla, so they are exempt from real-name verification and cannot undergo such verification.

2. Can .ai domain names be registered in China?

According to the relevant regulations, domain registration in China requires compliance with Internet Content Provider (ICP) registration rules and must pass the review of the MIIT to obtain an ICP license. However, .ai domain names have not been included in the MIIT's list of approved domain names for registration, and therefore, they cannot obtain an ICP license.

3. Can .ai domain names be accessed normally in China?

The accessibility of a domain name in China is not determined by the domain suffix but rather by your choice of hosting infrastructure.

In practice, if you use .ai domain names or other international domain names, Chinese users need not worry. You simply need to select hosting infrastructure that is located outside mainland China. If your target audience is within mainland China but you wish to use .ai domain names, you can choose servers and hosting infrastructure located in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong-based hosting infrastructure falls under overseas jurisdiction and does not require ICP registration. For Chinese mainland users, the access speed is generally not significantly affected. Therefore, for users planning to register or purchase .ai domain names, there is no need to worry. While .ai domain names cannot be registered in China, this does not impede their usage.
