Netscape to expand Web site overseas

Hectic traffic on Netscape's Web site has persuaded the company to establish mirror sites, including one in Asia.

In an effort to keep pace with growing traffic on its World Wide Web site, Netscape within two weeks will establish a "mirror" site in the US followed in the near future by a site in Paris and one in Asia, says companyhead Jim Barksdale.

A company spokesman would not comment on where the Asia site will be located.

The mirror sites will allow the company to more easily support the massive number of hits its Web site receives each day, Barksdale says.
