Domain Fast Find generates list of available domain names based on selected
key words; Multi-Name Registration enables registrations for multiple names
New York, NY – April 11, 2000 – Register.com, Inc. (Nasdaq: RCOM), one of
the leading domain name registrars on the Internet, today launched two new
applications to enable faster and more effective domain name registrations.
Domain Fast Find searches for available domain names based on key words

desired domain is already taken. In addition, the company launched
Multi-Name registration, which allows customers to register multiple domain
names at once.
In another upgrade, customers using register.coms standard search and
registration service can now enter up to three names and receive complete
search results for .com, .net and .org domain names.
