Two more US Internet cos leave China
Washington, Mar 25: Two more US Internet companies have decided to pull out of China because of internet freedom restrictions and censorship.

This announcement comes just days after Internet giant, Google stopped censoring search results in China.

Christine Jones, executive vice president of Go Daddy, which runs the world's largest domain name service, said the company will no longer register new Web Sites in China.

"This was a decision we made in our own right, based on our experience of having to contact Chinese nationals, collect their personal information and grudgingly return it back to Chinese officials," she said.

Another company that offers similar services, Network Solutions LLC, said that it had stopped handling China Web registrations in Dec 2009, for the same reason.

Congressman Christopher Smith said, "Go Daddy is the first company to publicly follow Google's example in responding to the Chinese government's censorship."
