As part of our domain name registration services, Mailclub can provide local representation in new foreign markets, confidentiality for projects which require anonymity, or the option to render invisible your WHOIS data to avoid being revealed to marketing and commercial databases.
Mailclub provides a solution for each case:
Some countries require you to have a local presence in order to register a domain name with their extension (e.g. Germany, the Netherlands, France, etc.).
Thanks to its presence in several countries and through special agreements made with its network of partners, Mailclub can provide you with the necessary local representation.
This service is available for a number of countries including Germany, Hungary, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Hong-Kong (.asia), Singapore, and more.
Ensure your domain registrations do not disclose information that you want to keep confidential.
Competitive intelligence is a growing activity around domain names. Many companies are setting up monitoring systems which alert them in real time about domain names registered by their competitors. The Mailclub cover-name option allows you to ensure total anonymity when you register domain names for projects that you want to keep confidential - a new trademark, a new product, a company name change, etc.
To avoid spam, scams or disclosure of information to your competitors, it is now possible to make your WHOIS data invisible. With this option, available for a limited number of extensions, only your name appears. Your ownership rights are therefore not altered in any way, but the public ’WHOIS’ database does not show your postal address, telephone number or e-mail address.
The Internet is global, domain names too. More than fifty extensions now accept domain names with non-ASCII characters such as "é", "ñ" or "ä".
IDNs allowed sets of characters are different from one country to another. Austrian letters do not resemble much to Chinese ideograms !
Countries accepting IDNs are found primarily in Greater Europe: Austria, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Sweden, Turkey .. . but also in Asia: China, South Korea, Hongkong, India, Iran, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan ... or Latin America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Puerto Rico, Venezuela. Generic extensions are also concerned, such as the .BIZ, .COM, .INFO, .NET, .ORG ...
Internet is multi-cultural, so are domain names. To keep you on track of new changes, MailClub offers a translation and domain name registration service in Chinese ideograms for your trademarks and brands, using the various .cn extensions..
The use of Chinese ideograms in domain names registered at .CN is growing at a phenomenal rate. Between February 2008 and the end of June, China went from 1.8 million domain names to over 12 million, and since the beginning of July .CN has become the world’s second largest extension just behind .com, and the leading ‘country extension’, ahead of the German .DE or the British .CO.UK.
Lots of Western companies have already registered their .cn domain names, but few have done so in Chinese ideograms (’IDN’). Research has shown, however, that Chinese web users do not take the time to search for the site of a company who has not made the effort to speak their language. 80% of Chinese people use Chinese search engines (Baidu.com is in the lead with 62% of searches).
Your domain name cannot simply be translated in Chinese. It must be adapted to Chinese culture and markets. Several kinds of translation are possible - literal, phonetic or by logo. The Chinese translation for Danone, ‘DaNeng’, means ‘To Develop’ and ‘Energy’. Carrefour supermarkets, on the other hand, could not go for a phonetic translation, because the Chinese have difficulty pronouncing ’R’s. The supermarket group became JiaLeFu (家乐福) which means family, joy and happiness… all values that are important in Chinese culture.
With the help of local Chinese partners, Mailclub translates your trademarks into ideograms and sets up Chinese domain names for them. This translation takes into account a variety of factors such as business sector, slogan, corporate culture, logo, etc. to ensure maximum impact on the local market. If you already have the Chinese version(s) of your trademarks, Mailclub is happy to register your domains for a similar price to that of conventional .cn names.
