RealNames Gets Backing From Network Solutions

Network Solutions, which oversees the registration of .com, .net, .org and .edu domain names, has agreed to sell RealNames as part of its services. It is also making a $4.2 million investment in Centraal, the company behind RealNames.

The move came in December, along with a series of other deals Network Solutions has established relating to domain name sales. The company is poised to lose its monopoly on registering popular top level domains. To protect its bottom line, it has already tied up exclusive agreements to marketing domain registration services on Yahoo and at Netscape.

The partnership between the old guard of domain naming, Network Solutions, and the upstart addressing system that RealNames promotes, could be powerful. Why both companies may benefit from closer ties.
