MindSpring, NSI Team on Global Domain Name Service

Network Solutions Inc. and MindSpring Enterprises Inc. have announced plans to cooperate on the sale of top-level domain names that end in country codes such as .de for Germany, .fr for France and .jp for Japan, NSI said in a release today.

The agreement calls for MindSpring to market and distribute NSI's country-code top-level domain name registration services to its customers. The services are aimed at businesses that want to register product, brand and company names in the available country-code top-level domains, the release said.

MindSpring already offers Network Solutions' domain name registration services in the .com, .net and .org generic top-level domains.

There are 243 country-code top-level domains, of which 191 are actively registering domain names, according to NSI. Many top-level domains have sub-domains, bringing the total pool of active domains to 359.

Of those, 154 are currently classified as unrestricted, meaning a local presence is not required in order to submit an application. The remaining 205 domains are classified as restricted, requiring either a local presence or special documentation in order to submit an application, NSI said.

MindSpring, in Atlanta, can be reached at +1-404-815-0770 or at http://www.mindspring.net; NSI, in Herdon, Virginia, is at http://www.nsi.com.
