The chief executive of i-DNS.net, Michael Ng, said expected faster growth of non-native English-speaking Internet user numbers meant the business of non-English domain name registration services had big potential.
"China's entry into the World Trade Organisation will also induce mroe foreign firms to adopt a Chinese domain name to bolster their presence there," Mr Ng said.
According to i-DNS.net, the ratio of non-native English-speaking to English-speaking Internet users was projected to change from 40-60 last year to 60-40 in 2002.
Since its establishment in October last year, the firm has set up about 200,000 domains for companies and individuals worldwide.
New Cyber has been appointed a reseller of i-DNS.net's technology in domain name registration for the Chinese version of ".com"
Although New Cyber is a three-month-old start-up, Mr Ng said its partner had demonstrated capability to introduce the right industry contacts to i-DNS.net.
The two companies plan to invest more than US$5 million in the next two to three years to build up a marketing network in China.
Mr Ng said although i-DNS did not have an exclusive co-operation arrangement with New Cyber in China, it had no intention of appointing many resellers, to enable the two to have a "more co-ordinated" operation.
