 the world's leading Multilingual Internet Solutions Provider, today announced
 its selection of Akamai Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:   AKAM), the leading Content
 Delivery Service Provider (CDSP), to enhance the performance and reliability
 of downloads of i-DNS.net's iClient(TM), the free Windows Plug-in that enables

     In January 2001, i-DNS.net's iClient was introduced as a core component
 for using multilingual domain names registered in VeriSign's (Nasdaq:   VRSN)
 Multilingual Testbed.  As a result, i-DNS.net's iClient download pages and
 their mirrored equivalents at We-Multilingual.com and VeriSign-GRS.com have
 enjoyed brisk download figures facilitating the need to optimize download
 times, especially in developing markets where bandwidth is not readily
 available.
     "Akamai is pleased to assist i-DNS.net's efforts to enhance the online
 experience for end users across the globe, by maximizing the download delivery
 of its enabling technology," said Mike Campbell, Vice President of Sales,
 Akamai.
     i-DNS.net's iClient is the most comprehensive multilingual domain name
 resolution software available, supporting all domain names registered in the
 VeriSign Multilingual testbed.  In addition to resolving VeriSign's
 multilingual domain names, iClient also resolves full multilingual domain
 names registered with i-DNS.net's registrars.
     "With support for new languages constantly being announced, we have made
 good preparation to ensure users are consistently able to download and enjoy
 the benefits of our enabling technology," said Michael Ng, Chairman and Chief
 Executive Officer of i-DNS.net.
     In addition to the Akamaization of iClient, i-DNS.net also announced that
 Tokyo-based interQ Inc., Asia's first ICANN accredited registrar recently
 launched their co-branded 'Onamae iClient', designed and customized especially
 for their customers in the Japanese market.
     "By offering resolution via a co-branded 'Onamae iClient', interQ's
 multilingual domain registration services at onamae.com now offers a
 one-stop-shop capability from registration to resolution, all under the interQ
 brand our customers know and trust," said Richard Lindsay, interQ's Executive
 Director and System Headquarters Director.
