Now called Network Solutions. The people who assign IP (Internet Protocol)
dotted quad addresses and domain names ending in .com and
.net. They don’t handle .gov, .mil or .ca.
Their job is to make sure no two people have the same domain name or
IP. At the InterNIC
website, you can check if a given domain name has already been taken. You can also
find out who owns any given domain. You can also look up a company name and see what
their corresponding domain name is. The site is very busy because of the speculation
fad buying and selling domain names.
