- Internet domain operator Minds Plus Machines Group said its domain name renewals in China during second-quarter had surpassed 75% of 525,000 registered names.

This figure was likely to increase, as the rolling 45-day 'at grace' period that followed a registration's anniversary renewal date ended, the company said.

'The renewal results places .vip in-line with the best-in-class renewal rates of leading top-level domains globally,' Minds + Machines said.

'The directors believe, based on the data available, [they] make .vip the top performing mass generic TLD in China, with total registrations in .vip now standing at 888,400.'
