A few hours after the Asia Identity on the Internet was made a reality
by the formal agreement between DotAsia Organisation and ICANN, EuroDNS
SA is proud to announce its support of the .ASIA Top Level Domain while
DotAsia welcomes the AsiaDNS service to become a trusted and dedicated
.ASIA is a wonderful opportunity for the members of the Region to
express themselves on the Internet. It is a natural fit for our AsiaDNS
service. The level of interest from our users have been tremendous in
the last few months and we are truly excited to move forward today,
immediately following this milestone agreement for the Internet”
commented Frederick Schiwek, VP Sales & Marketing of EuroDNS.com
during the ICANN meeting.
Various discussions between DotASIA and EuroDNS have taken place over
the last year, culminating with a conference supporting the TLD done by
EuroDNS in the June edition of Domainfest Barcelona. With the official
launch of .ASIA, both parties will continue their dialogue on
Registration Policies and concentrate their marketing efforts.
Starting Monday 11th December, all Internet users interested in the
.ASIA identity will be able to express their interest for any domain
(ie: identity.Asia) by filling out a special form on the www.asiadns.com
site. While this service cannot be a pre-registration until the actual
.Asia rules are finalised, it is an increased chance for any potential
domain registration to be considered and will allow DotAsia and EuroDNS
to get a better feel of the market.
“We are excited about the launch of the .ASIA TLD and are delighted to
work with AsiaDNS on the promotion of .ASIA” said Edmon Chung, CEO of
Operating around the globe, EuroDNS is based in Luxembourg with a
subsidiary in Korea. The company is a worldwide Registrar, specialising
in Geographical Domain Names, in Europe and in Asia through its
dedicated AsiaDNS service. Its domain registration portal, covers 15
different languages and serves more than 97% of Europe's population
with over 25 Top Level Domains.
