Apple’s China website launches new domain name Apple.com.cn results that have also been blocked by Google and Safari

Apple uses the Apple.com domain name in every market around the world, and then each market is displayed in a subfolder by country or regional code. However, there should have been netizens to find that from yesterday, the domestic access of the word domain name into Apple.com.cn and will force the previous domain name to jump over.

The new domain name appears to have been approved on November 15, 2019, and the HTTPS encryption certificate will be issued on October 24, 2019.

Yes, Apple has already launched a new official domain name in mainland China, so it will force a jump, but the new domain name is also almost thought of as a phishing site.

Google Safe Browsing blocks this new domain name:

Originally, Apple’s launch of a new domain name in the mainland market was not a big deal, but it is interesting to note that the site was blocked directly by Google as a phishing site.

According to V2EX netizens posted that the new domain name was launched yesterday after Safari browser access will be false, Google in the intercept prompt said that the site is a fraudulent site.

If the user continues to visit the site may be installed malware or financial disclosure, etc., and Apple’s new domain name certificate is no problem.

Apple Safari uses Google’s Secure Browsing service to be blocked by Google, although access with Google Chrome will be the same.

It was then unclear whether Apple contacted Google For Feedback or whether Google had received feedback from other users that was not a phishing site and that continued access would no longer be blocked.

The new domain name does not enable domestic CDN:

It’s worth noting whether it’s time to go live or why, and Apple’s new domain name in the Chinese market doesn’t use the domestic CDN network.

Blue Dot tests found that the new domain name is currently using Akamai, an established U.S. CDN supplier, but the vendor has no nodes in mainland China.

So users in some provinces and cities may find that loading is slightly slower from the speed of access, which may require Apple to switch the CDN network before they can improve.

Apple has not yet made an announcement or response to the launch of a new domain name in the mainland Chinese market, but users need not worry about phishing sites if they are switched to the new domain name.
