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.
