Late yesterday, Neustar, who handles all "international accredited registrars" for CNNIC, received notice from CNNIC that in order to implement a better methodology to verify registrant information from overseas registrations, CNNIC has made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend new registrations from all overseas registrars starting at:
January 6th, 2010, 10:00 UTC
PLEASE NOTE: Neustar understands that this suspension only effects NEW registrations and does not effect renewals.
This news means that HEXONET is also required to suspend NEW CN registrations until further notified. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide immediate updates as we receive more information.
In the event you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
