    The company has grown rapidly since its founding in June 1997, thanks in part to its investment in search engine technology and massively multiplayer online gaming. Fantasy Westward Journey, an MMORPG developed internally by NetEase, is an online game in China.

    In 2001, a class action lawsuit was filed against NetEase alleging violation of the Securities Act by artificially inflating its financial results and filing a materially false prospectus.

    In 2004, NetEase''s founder and chief architect William Ding (Ding Lei) won the Wharton Infosys Business Transformation Award for his innovative use of information technology. Ding became one of the wealthiest individuals in China after founding NetEase.

    NetEase has a market value of US$7.8 billion as of May 2012, and over 6000 employees as of 31 December 2011. As of December 31, 2012, NetEase had 7,098 employees.

    The 163.com domain attracted at least 1.8 million visitors annually by 2008 according to a Compete.com survey. In April 2010, the site was the 28th most visited site in the world according to Alexa''s internet rankings and in August 2010, the site was the 27th most visited site drawing more traffic than the websites of AOL, BBC, Flickr, Craigslist, Apple, CNN, LinkedIn, Adobe, CNet, ESPN and several other heavy hitters.

    On March 29, 2012, the company''s official English name was changed from NetEase.com, Inc to NetEase, Inc.
