Computer-simulation techniques are used to study the domain-growth kinetics of (2×1) ordering in a two-dimensional Ising model with nonconserved order parameter and with variable ratio α of next-nearest- and nearest-neighbor interactions. At zero temperature, persistent growth characterized by the classical growth exponent n≃1 / 2 is found for α≥1, whereas the domain boundaries become pinned and the growth stops for α
