Iperdome Latest Casualty in Domain Name Wars


CONTACT:  Jay Fenello, 770-392-9480

     ATLANTA, September 24 /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.
