To further this effort, the company signed a marketing agreement with NY-based Domain Asia, Inc. to build channels in China, Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
The company said it is responding to an increase in the registration of .com, .net, and .org domains in Asian-Pacific countries.
"Many Asia-Pacific companies are trading companies that operate globally and demand an international brand like .com, .net and .org," said Doug Wolford, NSI's senior vice president, marketing and sales, in a statement.
Network Solutions said a recent report from International Data Corporation (IDC) revealed that the number of Internet users in the Asia-Pacific region will climb considerably in 1998, and it is projected that in some countries numbers will double.
Gary Hayward, NSI's vice president, international marketing, said that from March '97 to March '98, China's .com registrations grew more than 500%.
