China are moving further away from the rest of the world when it comes to the Internet, taking control, making sure information doesn’t get out and making sure other people don’t have access to anything behind the Great Firewall of China.
China’s Ministry of Information Industry (MII) has made adjustment to China’s Internet domain name system in accordance with Article 6 of China Internet Domain Names Regulations.
After the adjustment, “.MIL” will be added under the top-level domain (TLD) name of “CN”.
A new Internet domain name system will take effect as of March 1 in China.
A pretty extensive system.
There’ll be 34 domain names for the organizations of China’s provinces, autonomous regions, municipalities directly under central government, and special administrative regions. They are mainly composed of the first letters of the Romanized spelling of the names of the regions, for example Beijing’s domain name is “BJ” and Shanghai’s is “SH”.
