> February 7, 2001 (ICB TOLL FREE NEWS) People's Daily reports that China
> Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) has launched its Chinese Domain
> Name System.
> Internet surfers can also access other websites that do not end with ".cn" by
> entering Chinese characters, so long as they have installed client software
> provided by CNNIC, states the report.
> Significantly, the "client software" referenced above means that CNNIC's
> Chinese Domain Name System is using an alternate root server - an inclusive
> name space root that operates in the same manner, but independently of the
> U.S./DoC root system.
> Users of ISPs that have installed the Chinese domain name resolving software
> need not resort to installing the client software of their own. Many ISPs
> regard the resolve function as a kind of value-added service, so they are
> actively cooperating with CNNIC to promote and popularize this service.
> CNNIC will provide three kinds of code formats for each domain name including
> GBK, BIG5, UTF8 which are respectively used by Chinese mainland, Hong Kong &
> Taiwan and Win2K users. Internet users can use their local code format
> conveniently and there is no need to convert characters. This will undoubtedly
> help lay a good foundation for interchanges between the motherland, Hong Kong
> and Taiwan.
