As a result of the NREN NIS award by National Science Foundation,

non-DDN registration services will soon be transferred from the DDN

NIC to the new Internet Registration Service, which is a part of an

entity referred to as the InterNIC. References in this document to

the InterNIC apply to the Registration Services portion only.

Internet registration services are gradually transitioning to the

InterNIC. We expect that the full transition will be accomplished by

April 1, 1993. During this transitional period, EMail, Fax, and U.S.

submitted to either or through March 31. The new InterNIC

templates will be accepted effective April 1, 1993, but not until

that time.
