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.
