Hereafter, .cn domain name applicants should be corporate entities and they will be requested to attach a photocopy of their company ID certificate to the application. All .cn domain names in service will be investigated and screened by the authority, and those recognized as being inappropriately used will be removed from the .cn domain database if no correction made in five days after being warned.
