"We are glad to have this opportunity to work with i-DNS.net. It is my firm belief that our collaboration in this high-demand market can only spell success for both companies," says Lee Chung Jong, Chief Executive Officer of Whois.
"Hangul domain names enable everybody to establish their online presence in the familiar Korean script. This enabling technology is usable worldwide and will facilitate intuitive use of the Internet," said Michael Ng, Chief Executive Officer of i-DNS.net.
"Non-native English speakers can now enter the Internet on their own terms, without having to go through the tedious process of memorizing ASCII characters that are meaningless to them," said Carole Cho, Business Development Director of the newly incorporated i-DNS.net International (Korea).
