Network Solutions, American Express Team Up

Network Solutions Inc. and American Express are teaming up
“to make it possible for small business owners to establish an Internet
presence and receive helpful business advice at the same time.”


As part of the agreement, Network Solutions will offer Web
address registration services on the American Express Small Business Exchange
Web site, and American Express
will promote its products and services through Network Solutions’ “online dot
com” toolkit. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.


Network Solutions will provide its Premier Domain Registration Service to
American Express. The service features personalized support for domain name
registrations, modifications and customized payment options. American Express
customers can access expedited domain name registration services through a
hyperlink on the American Express Small
Business Exchange
, which is a community for entrepreneurs that features
information, tools and advice for starting, operating and growing a small
business.


Network Solutions will display a link to American Express services in its dot
com toolkit, a small business resource center available at networksolutions.com that provides
access to tools and services for setting up a Web site and doing business on
the Internet.


Visitors to the dot com toolkit can click on the American Express logo to
apply to accept the card at both their e-commerce sites and/or offline
businesses.


Network Solutions has been involved in controversy lately, as some Web developers have complained about the company’s slow domain name registration.
