Iperdome Offers Free Trial of .per
ATLANTA, May 5, 1999 /PRNewswire/ -- Iperdome, Inc., the
company offering Personal Domain Name services under the .per(SM) brand and
Top Level Domain (TLD), today announced several changes designed to
position the company as a competitor to the recently selected ICANN
Registrars. These changes include
-- Converting the entire .per(SM) name space
from a distributed zone to a managed zone. This novel, useful
and likely patentable approach features Discrete Domain Name
Assignments (DDNA), a new process that allows millions of individuals
to share common family names.
-- Combining the traditional Registry/Registrar
functions so that individuals can use their Personal Domain Names via
a single contact point, without any technical knowledge, for a very
-- Offering all Netizens a free trial .per(SM)
Identity, free email forwarding, and a free membership in the Personal
Domain Name Holders Association.
"These changes were designed to meet the needs of
individuals in securing a lasting, permanent Internet identity, and to give
them a voice in Internet governance," said Jay Fenello, President of
Iperdome. "Our goal is to bring diversity to the name space, and
choice to the marketplace."
Iperdome has been fighting for over two years to get .per(SM)
added to the legacy root servers. Today, many people agree that
Iperdome's .per(SM) is likely to be among the very first new TLDs. In
the interim, Iperdome is pleased to offer world-wide visibility for .per(SM)
services under the .nu and .to TLDs.
"Our goal is to make the .per(SM) brand more pervasive
than phone numbers. And with DDNA, we can easily accommodate over 100
million clients!" said Fenello. "'What's your .per(SM)?'
will now be our marketing mantra."
