CentralNic Group has announced that the most popular new generic top level domain (new gTLD) ending .XYZ is one of the first domain endings to be accredited by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology , allowing businesses and individuals in China to use .XYZ domain names to host their websites. CentralNic, which is .XYZ's exclusive distributor, worked closely with .XYZ to put in place a customised technology platform that has been approved by both the global internet regulator ICANN and China's MIIT - succeeding in securing .XYZ a ranking among the first batch of non-Chinese 'not-COM' domains approved for Chinese citizens. MIIT-accredited .XYZ web addresses will be available via Chinese domain registrars from 16 December. CentralNic chief executive Ben Crawford said: "I am delighted that our partner .XYZ has received its MIIT accreditation, .XYZ has always been the dominant new TLD, and China the biggest new TLD market. It's an exciting moment that should see .XYZ grow even faster." At 8:18am: (LON:CNIC) Centralnic Group Plc share price was 0p at 46.75p Story provided by
