China -  Chinese law firm

Have the three registrars take measures to reduce such conflicts or inconsistencies?

Yes. i-DNS and VeriSign announced an alliance in January 2001, focusing on extended use by VeriSign of i-DNS's multilingual enabling technology. However, their registration systems are still distinctly separated. Thus, the same Chinese character second level domain name with the equivalent Chinese and English Top Level Domain names (e.g. ʷɔ .com and ʷɔ.ʫ˭ ) can be registered with both registrars.

Examples of generic Top Level Domain names are .com, .org, .net, .aero, .biz, .coop, .info, .museum, .name, and .pro. Examples of Country code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs), include .cn for China, .ch for Switzerland or .ru for the Russian Federation.

Whilst the Amercian NSI and Singaporean i-DNS registrars have forged closer bonds, CINIC has formed a consortium with TWNIC, HKNIC and MONIC - of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau respectively - to develop CCDN's in the Greater China Region.
