Domain names in Chinese characters may also be registered at the second level. Furthermore, any registrant of a standard domain name who has chosen a domestic registrar may automatically get two further domain names in Chinese characters beneath the following second-level domains: 網 路.tw, 組織.tw and 商業.tw. These second-level domains correspond to .net.tw, .org.tw and .com.tw.
