Having gone through a Q&A session, the Group was finally granted the license, ranking itone of the first enterprises that operate new generic top-level domains (GTLD).GTLD is now gathering steams worldwide, which greatly replenishes the dwindling domain resources and expands the growing space for China's internet sector.
