Efforts Made by XYZ in China To Date
For a quick update: we formed our Chinese business entity with a local office in Beijing, acquired our Chinese business license, and our local TLD management system is currently undergoing testing by ICANN. We have submitted applications for all of our TLDs for accreditation and are in the final stages of the approval process. Once approved, the next generation of internet users will be able to host their creative, beautiful .xyz websites in China!
