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 that as of January 11th, 2010, we will attempt to withdraw the total cost of all your .ORG Chinese IDN pre-registrations from your 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.
With the recent policy changes for .CN, this may turn out to be a tremendous opportunity for .ORG in China.
