Magaziner Continues to Build Consensus for Domain Name Solution
Iperdome Encouraged by Current Direction

NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 1998 /PRNewswire/ -- Iperdome, Inc. today issued the following press release:

Ira Magaziner, President Clinton's senior technical policy advisor, yesterday hosted a Commerce Department meeting with a group of domain name industry pioneers to discuss the U.S. Government's long awaited green paper on the Domain Name System.

Key features of the green paper include the establishment of a non-profit corporation to assume the supervisory role of IP address assignments, management of the main DNS root server, protocol issues, and TLD policy.  This new entity would be composed of a broad, cross-section of Internet stakeholders, and would be representative in nature.  The paper also features an orderly transition to this new structure.

Unlike reports of last week's meeting with the leadership of POC and CORE, virtually everyone in attendance supported the suggestions as presented by Magaziner.  The actual details of how new TLDs would be decided are still being discussed, but the participants were encouraged by the recognition that those in attendance were operational before CORE was even formed.

"There are companies like Iperdome, Image Online Designs, and MCSNet that have been active in this business for a year or more.  We have established significant Intellectual Property rights.  We have working registries, working code, working name servers, and yes, working root servers." said Jay Fenello, president of Iperdome.

The actual attendees were a collection of diverse individuals who have been working together to effect a positive decision within the U.S. Government's process for the past several months.

Just about the only surprise discussed at the meeting were the continued comments by CORE that they will fight the U.S. Government on this issue. "While surprising, it certainly isn't unexpected.  The leadership of POC andCORE have consistently refused to work towards a consensus with anyone who didn't support their view," said Fenello.

Iperdome, Inc. is a company formed for the purpose of offering Personal Domain Name services under the .per(sm) name and Top Level Domain.  Iperdome has been active in this debate since it began over a year ago, and first called for the U.S. Government to review the activities of the IAHC on April 29th, 1997.  Iperdome can be found at http//www.iperdome.com.
