i-DNS.net International Partners K.Y. Corporation To Provide Japanese Domain Name Registration Service

General, i-DNS.net International, 24 October 2000 -- i-DNS.net International (i-DNS.net), the world's leading provider of multilingual Internet technology solutions and K.Y Corporation, one of Japan’s leading provider of multimedia-related services, today announced the immediate availability of domain names entirely in Japanese.

Registration of Japanese domain names ending with “"” and “"” (corresponding to “.com” and “.net” respectively) can be made online at KY Corporation’s website - www.nihongo-domain.com. Any organization interested in registering its domain name in Japanese can simply visit this website to register online today.
