.com and .net is popular in China too. However, we suggest to registering domain from a registrar in China.
According to the new policy of registering ICP in Beijing, they don’t accept domain from other countries. (e.g.: .ae is domain name of UAE. MIIT doesn’t accept application for it.) If you registered .com or .net outside of China, it won’t be acceptable. (e.g.: we registered e-marketing-china.com on godaddy, if we submit the application in beijing, the local MIIT won’t accept our application.)
This is a new policy in beijing, it is very possible that other regional office will follow the same fule as beijing in future. So we highly recommand to registering a domain name from an CN accredited Domestic registrars
We normally use dnspod.cn to registering domain name, it is a company that belongs to tencent qq. You could find their name in above list as well.
