eDNS Charter Member and Registry Prepares
for New Service Offering
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 11, 1997 -- Iperdome, Inc.
(http//www.iperdome.com), a new startup formed specifically to offer
personal domain names under the new Top Level Domain (TLD) of
".per" today announced its intent to seek a Strategic
Marketing Partner to support its planned roll out of a new service
Until recently, TLDs were limited to business (.com),
government (.gov), and other organization based categories. With the
recent approval of the eDNS Charter in Atlanta, individuals on the Internet
can now have their own personal domain names under the ".per"
"Based on the response we had to our first press
release, we realized that there is a tremendous amount of pent-up demand
for a simple naming solution for internet users" noted Jay Fenello,
Iperdome president. "With over 30 million internet users as
potential clients of Iperdome, we want to make sure that we have the
resources to meet the anticipated demand before we roll out our new service
Iperdome believes that partnering with a Fortune 1000
company, one with a long term interest in internet related services, makes
the most sense. "Our Corporate Partner will benefit by having
easy access to this new industry - Iperdome will benefit by having
additional resources available for marketing and infrastructure - and eDNS
will benefit from the momentum a Fortune 1000 company will generate"
eDNS is an enhanced version of the current Domain Name
System. It was established by a consensus agreement for the development and
implementation of additional Top Level Domains and the governance of name
assignments within those TLDs. eDNS includes all of the current IANA
TLDs, ISO country codes, non-conflicting IAHC TLDs, and Alternic
TLDs. It features an open competition model, whereby a variety of
registries compete in a fair, minimalist and impartial manner. Some
of the new TLDs available through eDNS include ".biz,"
".ltd," ".fam," and ".web". A current
summary of eDNS supporters and activities is available at http//www.edns.net
