i-DNS.net Expects Standard Chinese Domain Name System by Year-End

Hong Kong, HK Economic Times, 12 October 2000 -- Although a standard for the Chinese domain name system has yet to be named, CNNIC and i-DNS.net International (an American-based Singaporean firm) have been working together since last year to resolve incompatibility issues between their systems.

According to the CEO of i-DNS.net International Mr Michael Ng yesterday, negotiations with CNNIC have been underway in the three aspects of Regulation, Policy Management and Technology.

Ng expressed optimism in view of a resolution despite saying that it would 'take some time' to synchronize with CNNIC's system. He hinted that a resolution would be evolved by the end of the year, but declined further comment on the matter.

New Cyber to Promote Domain Names Ending with []

Although it will take some time before the advent of a standard system, i-DNS.net has in the meantime made an ally of New Cyber to promote registrations of domain names ending with [] in China's market through the latter's network of contacts. The new allies expect to increase the number of registrations to 100,000 within 12 months; and would not be offering registrations of domain names with [] for the moment. He emphasized that the allegiance with New Cyber is not intended to create confusion.

i-DNS.net International announced earlier an agreement to provide key enabling multilingual technology to the Network Solutions Registry (NSI Registry), a business of Network Solutions, Inc. (NSI) to enable domain names to be registered and used in major non-English languages. Some has pointed out the move as a highly strategic one for i-DNS.net. However, others pointed out that the Chinese government's attitude towards i-DNS.net is still being contingent for future developments.

Ng emphasized that i-DNS.net has no intention to be involved in any politics. He pointed out that his company is technically capable to offer domain names ending with [.] but it is not to their interests and is disrespectful of the country's integrity to do so. He disclosed that i-DNS.net has turned down an offer of US$100,000 this January by a firm to undertake registrations of such nature.
