GoDaddy announced that it is now giving small business customers worldwide access to .cn domains to create better experiences for Chinese customers.

The company now offers a total of 421 domain name extensions.

"We received many requests from customers who were wanting to improve their presence in China," said GoDaddy Senior Vice President and General Manager Mike McLaughlin. "Internet users in China like having .cn domain names to reflect their identity in their local market. In addition, if a company wants to improve cross-border commerce with China, it makes sense to have a .cn name."

"GoDaddy is one of our most important partners, we are looking forward to expanding our .cn domain name business worldwide with GoDaddy," said CNNIC, President and CEO, Xiaodong Lee.

The .CN domain offering is part of a larger Asian roll-out from GoDaddy. The company separately announced its expansion into 11 new Asian markets. More on that here.
