HEXONET is accepting .ORG Chinese IDN Pre-Registrations on a "first-come-first-served basis". A great opportunity given the recent policy changes for .CN domains.
Please note that .ORG Chinese IDNs registered between 19:00 UTC, 23 January 2010 and 19:00 UTC, 22 February 2010 will have restriction place on them to allow for intellectual property interests to file UDRP actions if warranted. Thus, registrations during this first 30 days will be placed in Server Delete Prohibited, Server Transfer Prohibited, Server Update Prohibited, Server Renew Prohibited and Server Hold. Also, only Chinese IDNs will be available, meaning Spanish, German, Danish, Hungarian, Icelandic, Korean (Hangul), Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish and Swedish IDNs are EXCLUDED.

Pre-Registrations via Control Panel:
Pre-registrations can be submitted through the Control Panel by logging into your account and navigating to "Manage Products > Domains" and clicking the "Pre-reg Admin" link in the left side menu. From here one can list existing or submit new pre-registrations. Users can modify or delete any pre-registrations without charge prior to the launch date.
IMPORTANT - Pre-Registration Billing:
Please note, starting January 11, 2010, HEXONET will be attempting to withdraw deposits equaling the total cost of all .ORG Chinese IDN pre-registrations from each reseller account. This deduction is only to reserve funds in case all your pre-registration are successful. Reserved funds will be returned back to your account if any pre-registrations are not successful or if you delete a pre-registration before the launch date.
Please note, that 24 hours prior to the actual "Go Live", HEXONET will stop accepting pre-registrations. Additional domain requests will be queued up and submitted to the registry once our main batch-queue has been submitted successfully. As always, if any pre-registrations should fail, refunds will automatically be applied to your reseller account.
