123-reg begins year of the .cn domain.be ahead with new international domains .at 123-reg
To celebrate the Chinese New Year today, 123-reg has launched .cn domain name extension as part of its new range expanding into Europe and Asia in 2008. With .cn now the fourth largest top level domain, having leapfrogged .uk last year*, it is an opportunity for businesses to join the rapidly expanding Chinese market for as little as £14.99 (excluding VAT) per year – among the cheapest .cn domains in the UK.
Available at the same price, 123-reg have also added .es (Spain) and .be (Belgium) domains to its new range with .dk (Denmark), .it (Italy), .at (Austria) and .ch (Switzerland) to follow shortly. This enables businesses that have a presence in these specific countries to increase their online search ranking with a local domain.
Free with every 123-reg domain is an InstantSite homepage that creates a professional website in minutes and includes email forwarding, web forwarding and free images from iStockphoto. All this can be accessed through the easy-to-use 123-reg control panel and DNS settings can be amended to personal specifications, giving users total control and flexibility with their domain name.
“With our new range of domains, businesses can now gain online exposure globally,” comments Mark Beyer, sales and marketing director at 123-reg. “The lucrative .cn market is increasing at such a rapid pace, that our new .cn domains provide access to a huge online population of potential customers. Having a local domain also helps boost online search rankings – perfect for businesses developing an international presence.”
