China Channel (www.china-channel.com) announced in Beijing on 9 September that an agreement has been reached with i-DNS.net and i-EMAIL.net to empower China Channel the rights to adopt their multilingual i-DNS and i-Email technologies; thereby making the registration of .com, .net and .org TLDs and email addresses in Chinese characters possible. This has made China Channel the first premier ICANN accredited registrar to be able to do so.
As both i-DNS and i-Email technologies are based on the Unicode system, which is compatible with RACE, UTF-5, UTF-8 and other decoding systems supported by browsers and DNS worldwide, end-users need not download or install any other software to access the Chinese domain names or email addresses.
The Chinese email addresses come with an automatic forwarding function that can forward all email received in the Chinese mailbox to other mailboxes chosen by the user. This product is the world's first to be released by i-EMAIL.net.
Boasting long-term financial backing by General Atlantic Partners LLC (GA), the multilingual DNS Unicode system developed by i-DNS.net International supports 59 languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish.
i-EMAIL.net, also financed by GA, is a multilingual internet solutions provider that caters to the global IT market. Its core technology - i-Email technology would allow the individual the choice to adopt a non-English email address in the form of any language.
