i-DNS.net Sings Praises for Chinese Domain Name System

Hong Kong, Apple Daily News, 11 September 2000 -- It is commonly believed that the Chinese domain name technology derived by CDNC (a consortium formed by CNNIC, HKNIC, TWNIC and MONIC) is going to be named the global standard. However, Business Development Manager of i-DNS.net Mr Edwin Tan expressed that the prerequisite to a technology being named the standardized would be whether the technology has been well deployed. This, is the advantage i-DNS.net possess.

Mr Tan pointed out during the interview that for a technology to become a global standard it would take about 3 to 5 years. Thus, the final selection of the global standard is contingent on which Chinese domain name system has been most popular. Although the four Network Information Centres had formed the consortium in May to develop a technology for use in the four regions, the level of acceptance and number of registrants will however still be a criterion as to whether a system would be named standard.

He further pointed out that CDNC has yet to have launched its technology in the market and for now has no registrants at all. On the other hand, i-DNS.net's technology has been launched and had been in use over Southeast Asia. Its registrars in Hong Kong HKNet and 3gNIC had respectively received 10,000 and 40,000 applications for Chinese domain names.

Pioneering Edge

He also said that i-DNS.net has become one of the multilingual domain name system standards of Network Solutions Registry early this month and thus possess an advantageous edge as a pioneer in the field. He emphasized that i-DNS.net has been contacting CNNIC to open up communication channels.

However, CNNIC and CDNC had been busy with Chinese domain name registrations and i-DNS.net had been similarly loaded with its operations. As such, cooperation between the two had been delayed.
