.NU Domain Ltd Partners with NIC-SE for Technical Services

MEDFIELD, MA, December 3, 1999 – The .NU Domain Ltd, one of the fastest growing domains on the Internet, today announced a partnership with NIC-SE for technical services and support. The NIC-SE will house and support .NU Domain’s name server in Sweden, ensuring faster and more secure services for its expanding customer base in the Nordic region.

“We have taken this initiative to improve the security and the service for everyone that uses the Internet in Sweden. Our goal is to create a similar operating agreement together with many of the most important top level domains in Sweden,” said Per Darnell, president of NIC-SE.

The agreement with NIC-SE provides .NU Domain Ltd with the ability to support its rapidly growing top level domain (TLD) registry services for top domains in the Nordic countries. Registrations of .NU domain names have doubled in the past six months.

The co-operation with NIC-SE ensures .NU Domain can provide faster and more secure services for its expanding customers.

“Our decision to partner with NIC-SE is based on their successful management of the most technically advanced and secure name service in Europe, perhaps in the world,” said J. William Semich, president of .NU Domain Ltd.

“.NU is a top level domain which has had impact even on the Swedish market and it is in our interest to have a well functioned Internet, where there is a special place for both .NU and .SE,” said Per Darnell, president of NIC-SE.
