Short for Internet Network Information Center, a registered service mark of the U.S. Department of Commerce and now a defunct entity. InterNIC began as a collaborative project between AT&T; and Network Solutions, Inc. (NSI) supported by the National Science Foundation. When active, the project offered four services:
  • InterNIC Directory and Database Services -- online white pages directory and directory of publicly accessible databases managed by AT&T.;
  • Registration Services -- domain name and IP address assignment managed by NSI.
  • Support Services -- outreach, education, and information services for the Internet community managed by NSI.
  • Net Scout Services -- online publications that summarize recent happenings of interest to Internet users (managed by NSI).
  • The InterNIC is currently an informational Web site established to provide the public with information about domain name registration. ICANN now oversees the domain name registration industry.
