Network Solutions Unleashes Dot Com Index

Network Solutions Inc. this week got into the stats game by launching NSOL.com/statistics, a new site on which the Net registrar will feature figures on who is registering what.

The stats will be updated on a monthly basis. Network Solutions created the site to track the Net's impact on the world's economy.

In January 2000, the top 10 businesses buying Internet domain names included photographers, attorneys, real estate, churches, insurance, internet service, restaurants, physicians and surgeons, computer software and accountants.

The top 10 repeat buyers in January 2000 included computer software, Net services, real estate agents and agencies, computer system designers and consultants, attorneys, computer and equipment dealers, advertising agencies and counselors, new car dealers, insurance, and business management consultants.

Last month, security software maker VeriSign (VRSN) bought Network Solutions (NSOL) for $21 billion to beef up its e-commerce services and products.
