ATLANTA, April 1, 1997 /PRNewswire/ -- Iperdome, Inc., today announced a
new, simplified method of Internet addressing for the ".per" Top
Level Domain (TLD). Called IperSpace(TM), this new service allows
Internet users to use a derivation of their Personal Domain Name as a
simplified WWW and eMail address. As an example, an Internet user who
reserves a Personal Domain Name like "MyName.per" can simplify
their WWW address from something like http//www.myisp.com/~username/subdirectory/filename.html
to http//www.per/MyName, and can simplify their eMail address from
firstname.lastname@example.org to MyName@mail.per.
Best of all, these simplified addresses can remain the same, regardless
of whether the Internet user changes Internet Service Providers (ISPs),
changes jobs, or changes eMail addresses. And since most Internet
users are currently dependent on their ISP or their employer for these
addresses, IperSpace(TM) provides an immediate solution to a growing
"One of the reasons we have been such big supporters of eDNS
(http//www.edns.net) is the new products and services that will result in a
competitive marketplace," noted Jay Fenello, Iperdome president.
"Until eDNS allowed a single company to administer a Top Level Domain,
the IperSpace(TM) service was simply not an option."
According to Fenello, IperSpace(TM) is the first in a series of new
products and services the company has been working on. The timing of this
announcement has been set to coincide with the official eDNS kickoff
scheduled for today, April 1st. IperSpace(TM) services are scheduled to
begin on April 2nd.
On a related note, Iperdome also announced that it has entered into
discussions with several of the existing eMail service companies. "It
is our intent to provide a Personal Domain Name that truly is a permanent
home on theInternet. Partnering with an organization that already has
infrastructure in eMail forwarding and services makes sense for both
parties," said Fenello.
Iperdome, Inc. is a new company formed specifically to offer Personal
Domain Names under the ".per" TLD. In creating IperSpace(TM),
the company has developed a significant body of Intellectual Property, and
has retained a Patent, Trademark and Copyright firm to protect its
interests. Iperdome was the host for the eDNS Charter meeting in
Atlanta, and has been active in coordinating eDNS marketing activities.
