Growing Strength of i-DNS.net Registrars Adopt Two-Way Approach Into Chinese Domain Name Market

Online, Tom.com, 11 October 2000 -- i-DNS.net CEO Mr Michael Ng has proposed a two-way approach to China's market. While i-DNS.net is still in the meantime at an impasse on the issue of a standardized Chinese domain name system with CNNIC, the company has proceeded to make an alliance of the world's largest domain name registration firm NSI in August. Today i-DNS.net announced a strategic alliance with New Cyber, which would further increase the probability of i-DNS.net's technology becoming the standard in the prevailing war of the Chinese domain name systems.

Mid-May this year saw CNNIC inviting TWNIC, MONIC and HKNIC to form the Chinese Domain Name Consortium (CDNC) to address the incompatibility problem of two mutually exclusive Chinese domain name systems. i-DNS.net participated in the hope to eliminate inconveniences of confusions between the two systems in the four territories.

Mr Ng revealed at a press conference that negotiations in the three aspects of Regulation, Policy Management and Technology have been underway for a long time with CNNIC without resolution. He emphasized that i-DNS.net is willing to adopt an open stance in the discussions and is expecting to resolve the issue by the end of the year with CNNIC. However, politically sensitive domain names like [Fa Lun Gong], {Tiananmen Square], [8964] etc. would still be subjected to directions from higher authorities in China.

When asked if the strategic alliance with New Cyber is a move to consolidate i-DNS technology's power hold in China's market, Ng explained that it is nothing more than just opening up more channels for trade. Ng denied that it was finesse on CNNIC, emphasizing that i-DNS.net would only process Chinese domain names with [] while leaving the registrations of domain names with [] to CNNIC's registrars.

He added that i-DNS.net would adopt a two-way approach from now to China's market: one via alliances with other registrars in China, the other to continue negotiations with Chinese authorities on the standardization of Chinese domain name systems.
