services for new grandmothers.

www.granny-to-be.com as our millionth domain name," said register.com CEO
Richard Forman. "The Internet has created fantastic opportunities for
people to make their dream of starting a business a reality and Felicia
Reymont embodies this spirit. As a young company, we understand first-hand
what small businesses need to succeed in e-commerce, and we're also living
proof of how quickly they can grow."

Ms. Reymont, who is also a songwriter, registered www.granny-to-be.com
initially to distribute a song she wrote and produced, "The Mom of a
Mom-to-Be." In the future, she plans to develop the site's offerings to
include other products for new grandmothers.

"I'm constantly hatching ideas for potential new businesses, which is why I
find the Internet so exciting," said Ms. Reymont, who formerly founded an
aerobics business in Westchester and a retail packaging service in Florida.
"It was only a few months ago that I realized how easy it was to register a
name through register.com. Now I find myself on the site all the time,
checking out names for different business plans."

build a site aimed at people who want to sell clothes and other items that
have never been worn or used. To help her get started on her ventures, Ms.
