VeriSign attempts to heart-start domain name sector

VeriSign is desperately trying to shake the US association attached to the .com domain as an attempt to market more widely and jump-start the waning domain name sector.

At Internet World yesterday Arthur Chang, managing director for the Asia Pacific VeriSign Registrar, said "our challenge here is to grow our presence and partner network to really create awareness for domain names and [for]VeriSign's expertise in helping people establish a web presence."

The domain name giant is trying to lure local Internet services and hosting companies away from existing suppliers, especially those selling more than 80 domain names per month.

VeriSign is also considering the possibility of cross selling PKI (personal key identification) through domain name resellers and vice versa.
