The InterNIC is a collaborative project of three organizations which work
together to offer the Internet community a full scope of network
information services. These services include providing information about
accessing and using the Internet, assisting in locating resources on the
network, and registering network components for Internet connectivity.
Established in January of 1993 by the National Science Foundation, the
InterNIC is provided by General Atomics (Information Services), AT&T
(Directory and Database Services), and Network Solutions Inc. (Registration
Services). The term InterNIC signifies cooperation between Network
Information Centers, or NICs.
