i-DNS.net Appoints HANGANG Systems Inc. As Registrar For Korean Domain Names

General, i-DNS.net International, 8 February 2001 -- i-DNS.net International, 8 February 2001 -- i-DNS.net International (i-DNS.net), the leading multilingual domain names technology provider, today announced that it would be appointing HANGANG Systems Inc., Korea’s first ICANN-accredited domain name registrar, to offer registrations of domain names entirely in Korean.

HANGANG Systems will be accepting registrations of full Korean domain names ending with . , . and . (the generic top level domains for .com, .net and .org respectively) on their registration website – http://korea.doregi.com/

The Internationalized Domain Name System (i-DNS) is built upon Unicode, compatible with commonly used browsers and inter-operable with the current domain name system.

"We are proud to be working with i-DNS.net to deploy this innovative service. Full multilingual domain names round up our current offerings and firmly establishes HANGANG Systems as a premier provider of in-demand domain name registration services," said Chae Kyu Park, Chief Executive Officer of HANGANG Systems.

"Korea has the highest number of domain names registered outside of the United States. Now that full Korean domain names are available for registration, we are sure that this service will be very well received," said Michael Ng, Chief Executive Officer of i-DNS.net.

i-DNS.net currently provides local language domain name registration services across the globe in more than 20 different languages through its respective registrar partners. HANGANG Systems joins fellow ICANN-accredited registrars like Register.com, InternetNames WorldWide, interQ Inc., OnlineNIC; Seoul-based registrar InternetPlaza City and global industry players like dotTV Corporation and eNIC Corporation in the deployment of i-DNS.net’s domain name offerings.
