Iperdome Latest Casualty in Domain Name Wars

ATLANTA, Sept. 24, 1999 /PRNewswire/ -- Iperdome, Inc., the company offering Personal Domain Name services under the .per(SM) brand and Top Level Domain (TLD), today announced that it has suspended operations, becoming the latest casualty in the Domain Name Wars.

Iperdome has been one of the oldest surviving and most active prospective registries.  It was formed in January, 1997, was a founding member of the Enhanced Domain Name System (eDNS), and has been an active participant in the ongoing debate over Internet Governance and the establishment of ICANN.

"Iperdome has participated in good faith in the U.S. Government's efforts to privatize the administration of Internet resources" said Jay Fenello, President of Iperdome.  "In recent months, it has become apparent that these efforts were to no avail, as the process has been captured, and is unlikely to fairly resolve outstanding issues of new Top Level Domains."

Mr. Fenello expressed his sincere thanks (and apologies) to the many thousand of clients who have supported Iperdome throughout this process, and to the private investors who have shown continued support for his leadership.  Jay will be leaving his role as company President to return to private consulting.
