ATLANTA, March 10, 1998 /PRNewswire/ -- Iperdome, Inc.
(http//www.iperdome.com), the company offering Personal Domain Name
services under the .per(sm) name and Top Level Domain (TLD), today
announced a restructuring to comply with the U.S. Government's Green Paper
process. Iperdome also announced that it had established its first
Registry/Registrar relationship with Alldomains.com (http//www.alldomains.com/per).
Earlier this year, the U.S. Government announced their long
awaited plan for expanding the Domain Name System. While nothing in
the domain name expansion debate is certain, the so called Green Paper
appears to support existing TLDs like .per(sm). Iperdome now believes
that Personal Domain Names are likely to eventually gain entry into the
default root servers.
To prepare for that outcome, and to comply with the
requirements of the Green Paper process, Iperdome has reorganized its
business into Registry and Registrar functions. In addition, it has
focused its core business on the Registry business, and made registration
services for the .per(sm) name and TLD available at wholesale pricing to
authorized resellers (Registrars). Other changes include the implementation
"In making these changes, we have prepared for the new
competitive environment as described by the Green Paper process" said
Jay Fenello, President of Iperdome. "We have also addressed
issues raised by MoU supporters, issues like Personal Privacy and Renewal
Price Guarantees. With today's announcement, we are positioned to
offer Personal Domain Name services regardless of the outcome of the DNS
Iperdome's first "registrar" is Alldomains.com.
Founded in 1996, Alldomains.com has grown to become one of the leaders in
worldwide domain name registration services. This leadership is what
attracted such companies asFord, Baxter Healthcare, Chrysler, United
Airlines, Iomega and thousands of small businesses and private individuals
to use Alldomains.com.
"We see Iperdome and Personal Domain Names as leading
the domain name expansion debate. To my knowledge, they are the only
new TLD that offers their clients immediate world-wide visibility under
other country code TLDs. They are actually giving three domains for the
price of one!" said Chris Bura, President and CEO of Alldomains.com.
"Their new policies are very good for the industry, and I'm pleased
that Alldomains.com has been selected to be the first Registrar to enter
this exciting new arena."
Under the restructuring, Iperdome now offers Traditional
DNS Services under three domain names for $34.95 per year. For an
additional $15 per year, Alldomains.com will provide registration, virtual
hosting, personal homepage, and email forwarding services.
