[NPL] New Domain Name Registration Service

Thomson & Thomson Kicks-Off Namestake.com Link Network

Enables ISPs, Registrars and Web Hosting Services To Offer Users Advanced
Domain Name Registration

BOSTON -- Sept. 22, 1998 -- Thomson & Thomson (T&T), global trademark and
intellectual property experts, today announced the Namestake.com Link
Network, a partnership program targeting ISPs, registrars and Web hosting
services. The program enables partners to bolster their domain name
registration service offerings and earn revenues without incurring set-up
costs. By providing customers access to Namestake.com's free, real-time,
domain name/trademark screening tool, partners can help customers
registering domain names, avoid potential trademark infringement and
protect their online brand identities.

With the generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) registration monopoly ending, an
increasing number of companies will enter the registration business to
capitalize on this exploding market. Each day, more than 7,000 domain names
are being registered worldwide, making it increasingly difficult to create
and manage online identities. By joining the Namestake.com Link Network,
ISPs, registrars and Web hosting services can offer customers the most
powerful domain name registration service by linking to the Namestake site,
www.namestake.com, or simply embedding the Namestake.com logo into their
Web site.

"The complexities surrounding the domain name issue will become magnified
with the September 30 deadline ending NSI's monopoly on gTLD registrations.
Emerging market players must provide customers with the appropriate
information on domain names and trademarks to help them build online
brands," said Tom Barrett, vice president and general manager, Thomson &
Thomson's Namestake.com. "Partnering with Namestake.com will provide ISPs,
registrars and Web hosting services the necessary information and tools to
attract and retain customers, while increasing revenues."

Unlike other domain name search tools, Namestake.com provides users with
the closest domain name matches, including plurals and punctuation, and a
hit count of close similarities for free. Users can also purchase in-depth
reports, which include relevant information from the InterNIC and the 247
other International Top Level Domains, as well as the U.S. Federal
Trademark database. In addition, the site provides educational content
including trademarks and domain name facts and white papers.

The Namestake.com service was developed to address the critical issues
associated with building brands on the Internet. As companies continue to
extend their brands to the Web, and create new online brands, they are
finding that the stakes for establishing and protecting unique and
memorable online identities are extremely high.
