Godaddy Joins Google To Pull Out From Censored China. After 2 days of Google.cn started redirecting to Google.com.hk, stopping censorship for its services, Godaddy has discontinued registration of new .CN domain names..

The Domain Giant will still offer its services to the existing .CN domains.
A strict rule in China doesn't allow individuals to registrar a .CN domain name, until they get their business license or provide their identification along with the photo.
Which is actually a privacy issue according to the controllers of WEB.

The domain registrar says the sites hosted on its servers are being attacked by hackers. Godaddy has over 27,000 registered .cn domains in China. As the blogger, youtube and many Google services are blocked by China, Go-daddy's site is also blocked from time to time.

“Our decision to discontinue selling the .cn names had nothing to do with Google’s decision to move its search into Hong Kong. Nor does it have anything to do with generating publicity," Christine Jones, GoDaddy’s lawyer said in a hearing before Congressional-Executive Commission China.
