More safe and localized domain names are needed in China with the development of the Internet development, said an expert at a forum at the ongoing Second World Internet Conference on Friday.

It's important to ensure the security of the domain-name system in all aspects, said Li Xiaodong, president and CEO of China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC), at the session of "Promote Internet Development through Technology and Standards" at the sub forum on Internet Technology and Standards.

For example, if an Internet user finds the website address of a bank on the Internet, then we need to make sure the website of the bank is secure, said Li.

Nowadays with nearly 400 million mobile Internet users in China, it's also necessary to provide localized domain name system for them, said Li. It's not only a challenge to the traditional domain name system, but also an opportunity to upgrade the traditional system, said Li.

China has witnessed a rapid development of its Internet industry over the past two decades. As of July 2015, the number of Internet users had reached 668 million, the most in the world, according to official figures. All cities and towns, and 93.5 percent of administrative villages in China now have access to the Internet.

The Second World Internet Conference, the most high-profile Internet related event in China, is taking place in the picturesque water town of Wuzhen, Zhejiang province, Dec 16 to 18.

The conference, with a goal of "building a cyberspace community of shared destiny", has gathered together more than 2,000 participants, including state leaders, government officials, business leaders, Internet titans, and experts from more than 120 countries and regions.

The guests at 10 forums will exchange views on a wide range of topics such as Internet culture communication, Internet innovation and development, digital economic cooperation, cyber security, Internet plus, cyberspace governance and the digital Silk Road.
