The analysis of orbital parameters of planets and main planetary satellites of the solar system, published by the present authors, suggests that the Sun's system could be a "prototype" for the distribution of orbits in extrasolar planetary systems. Owing to the recent endeavours in detecting exoplanets, it became possible and suitable to check this assumption. Particularly useful in this work are the multiple extrasolar system with at least four planets. Unfortunately, there are only four stars satisfying this requirement. At the present time eleven stars with three planets have also been observed, which may also be taken into account in reaching reasonable assertions. Quantization of orbits in the solar system by orbital number, the integer n, and quantization of the product nvn (vn is the orbital velocity) by the spacing number, integer k, is also found in extrasolar planets. It is expected that new discoveries will support the present findings.
