NEWTOWN, PA - September 12, 2001 - In keeping with the obligation to inform the general public, Afilias, the registry selected by ICANN to operate the new .INFO top-level domain (TLD), will be accepting registrations from the general public for .INFO domain names effective September 12.

"In the wake of the tragic events in New York and our nation's capitol, this communication is simply a matter of public disclosure," said Afilias' Chief Marketing Officer, Roland LaPlante. "Clearly all attention should be focused on the innocent victims, as well as their loved ones."

Requests for .INFO names must be received at the registry prior to the September 18 deadline in order to be included in the first batch of names to be awarded to the general public. After September 18, a second batch will be run, followed by an ongoing period of real-time registrations expected to begin in early October. .INFO names can be
requested through more than 60 Afilias-authorized registrars. For a list of Afilias' authorized registrars, please visit


NEWTOWN, PA - September 17, 2001 - Afilias, the .INFO registry, today announced that due to the tragic events of September 11, it has modified its registration schedule for the public rollout of the new .INFO domain. Afilias will now accept requests for domain names to be processed as part of the initial queue of names through September 21,
2001, modified from the original date of September 18.

"With deference to all affected by the tragic circumstances surrounding the events of September 11, Afilias felt it necessary to make some schedule changes to ensure fairness to all registrants, and the registrars who serve them," said Hal Lubsen, CEO of Afilias.

September 27, 2001 - Names requests submitted through September 21 will be processed and awarded, and will resolve on this date.
October 1, 2001 - Real-time registration commences.

LaPlante:

"In keeping with the obligation to inform the general public"  -

This is hypocracy Roland, name me one Afilias customer who believes this is the truth or an Afilias policy - it's not good enough Roland to say one thing and do another.

Lubsen:

"With deference to all affected by the tragic circumstances surrounding the events of September 11, Afilias felt it necessary to make some schedule changes to ensure fairness to all registrants, and the registrars who serve them," said Hal Lubsen, CEO of Afilias.

This is hypocracy Hal, you appear to have done everything you could to ensure the unfairness of Afilias operations for Landrush applicants.

Afilias has no credibility and is a company out of touch with the realities of business as gauged by these comments.

Professional, ethical businessmen would be DOING not TALKING.
