No its not for servers. To run a computer in china the company has to be either 51% chinese owned OR the server has to be under control of a officially designated chinese citizen. That is why servers for china are usually stationed in countries near china (singapore, korea, etc). If your compooany gets too many chinese users though, china can block your huge outside-of-china servers.

china is just more free than usa for domain records because in the far past usa used to torment chinese email and chinese domain usage and they remember how many companies just banned all traffic from china outright because of porn and spam.

but it is funny that and many free speech sites had to get their usa domain records filed from china!

In the year 1998 Netherlands domain filing was needed to circumvent asinine censoring of domain spellings in the usa.

its kind of funny though
