Verio Launches Global Domain Name Registration Services

Seeking to get a leg up in what has become a critical segment of the Internet sector, Web hosting giant Verio Inc. Wednesday launched enhanced global domain name registration services.

Combined with its leading Web hosting, e-commerce and Internet access solutions, Verio's (VRIO) new service is designed for clients to work with a single service provider for all of their e-business needs. Also, Internet users can now register domains up to 63 characters in length.

Designed to expedite the registration process, Verio's self-serve domain name registration services enable customers to register domains, update domain name information, point domains to any location on the Internet, view the status of their domain names, make payments online and renew registrations for multiple years via a Web browser.

Customers also have the ability to transfer their registration service to Verio from other registrars, and may choose to extend their registration service at that time. Verio said it currently hosts more than 525,000 registered domains.

Verio is offering its new domain name registration services through a partnership with Internet Names WorldWide, a division of Melbourne IT, an official registrar accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Customers may now register .com, .netand .org top-level domains (TLDs) up to 63 characters in length and, as a part of the expanded features expected to launch in 2000, country-code TLDs including .uk (United Kingdom), .de (Germany), .fr (France), .es (Spain), .jp (Japan), .au (Australia) and other country-level domains.

Under the new service, a singular relationship is established whereby Verio manages the domain name registration and other e-business needs of the customer, providing a single point of contact for service requests, billing and other Internet services needs. These new services are available immediately via the Web site and Verio's telesales channel, and will eventually become available through its indirect distribution channels.
