August 4, 2000 - DomainZoo.com Announces the
Launch of its Domain Registration Web Site
TUCSON, AZ, August 4, 2000
DomainZoo.com, Inc. launches its new domain registration web site,
www.domainzoo.com, becoming one of only 57 operational accredited registrars in
the world to compete with Network Solutions, Inc (NSI) in the registration of
.com, .net, and .org domain names.
As the first and only operational
accredited domain registrar in Arizona and one of only a few in the world, we
are very pleased to have been selected by ICANN in this Internet milestone. The
process of opening competition in .com, .net, and .org registrations can only
benefit the consumer with better services, lower prices and more choices,
stated Steve Sullivan, President and CEO DomainZoo.com, Inc.
Under the Cooperative Agreement between
NSI and the U.S. Government, the competitive registrar testbed program was
completed on November 30, 1999. Upon the conclusion of the testbed program, the
Shared Registry System for the .com, .net, and .org domains was opened on equal
terms to all accredited registrars, meaning that any company that meets ICANN's
standards for accreditation is able to enter the market as a registrar.
About DomainZoo.com: DomainZoo.com is
an official registrar for .com, .net and .org domains. In addition,
DomainZoo.coms ISP/Web Developer Program, ShoppingZoo, Resource Center,
Affiliate and Reward Programs all offer advantages and opportunities to
everyone. Detailed information is available on their website at
