China, China Network World, 9 October 2000
-- China Channel (www.china-channel.com) announced in Beijing 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 registrar to be able to do so. Reportedly, China Channel will start handling global registrations for Chinese TLD names and email addresses from today onwards, and the registered names and addresses will be functional soon.
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. China Channel is one of few local registrars in China to be ICANN-accredited.
