Name Servers and Child Name Servers related Rules (Anchor: ns)

  • A .CN domain name can have maximum 6 Name Servers.

  • There is no limitation on the number of Child Name Servers you may create.

  • You may use IPV6 Addresses for Child Name Servers under .CN domain names.

  • An IP Address can be associated with only one Child Name Server. However, each Child Name Server can have multiple such IP Addresses associated with it.

  • If a particular IP Address is already associated with any other .CN domain name's Child Name Server registered through any Registrar, then it can not be used with any other Child Name Server under any other .CN domain name.

    Examples:

    • You may Register a Child Name Server with the Host Name ns1 for yourdomainname.com.cn and associate 66.11.11.11 with it. This Child Name Server would be created only if the IP Address 66.11.11.11 is not already associated with any other .CN domain name's Child Name Server registered through any Registrar.

    • In this manner, you may add unlimited Child Name Servers under this domain name but none of these can now be registered with 66.11.11.11 (since it is already used).

    • You may again Register a Child Name Server with the same Host Name ns1 for yourdomainname.com.cn and associate another IP Address 66.22.22.22 with it. This Child Name Server would be created only if the IP Address 66.22.22.22 is not already associated with any other .CN domain name's Child Name Server registered through any Registrar.
