Having successfully launched its .vip top level domain (TLD) in China, Minds + Machines Group Limited (LON:MMX) is on its way to unleashing four more.

The company will announce the release schedule on the newly approved top-level domains for the Chinese market in due course.

"We are greatly honoured to be the first western registry to receive a second round of approvals from MIIT.  China accounts for over half of global registrations in new gTLDs and from a revenue perspective it is important for the company to have a dominant position in this market," chief executive, Toby Hall, said at “The Computing Conference” in Hangzhou yesterday.
