Will it be the Chinese neighbor influence (.cn) ? TWNIC, the .tw Registry with the Taiwan code, opened in January the extension com.tm for all the foreign societies. It isn’t necessary to have an official presence in Taiwan or a legal representation into the place, like it was previously. The norms are also flexible for the other domains in the second level, since these are only referring to certain users categories. So, the .net.tw is opened without geographical distinction, but it is reserved for the access purveyors to Internet and the communication operators. In the same way, into the purest tradition, the .org.tw is only available for non-governmental organizations. In this frame of exactitude, domain names are accessible throughout the Registrars authorized by ETWNIC according to the norm that goes “first that arrives, first in attention”.
