Chinese local DNS records

Chinese local DNS records

International DNS (Domain Name Server) records can take two to three tries from a browser in China to locate your website.

Often the Chinese user stops trying and give up. It does help that the local ISP often displays their website instead of your company website when they cannot fine DNS in under 20ms

The issue is created by the master Name Service (NS) for domain is not reposing too slow from outside China.

The solution is to purchase Chinese domain; i.e. .cn. com.cn. The Chinese domains NS records are held inside China.

We recommend that you use a local Chinese DNS supplied by Domain supplier. This means you will be using local NS and DNS services for your Chinese domain name.

Please notes: 

  • The Google public DNSs servers (8.8.8.8. and 8.8.4.4) often do not response at all in China. This is due to many Google services been blocked in China.
  • Our recommendation for Chinese public DNS: 114.114.114.114. This is the China railway public DNS and very fast on all Chinese networks.

To operate a public DNS in China requires a licence from the internet authorities.
