NeuLevel Announces New .BIZ Launch Date
New launch date allows more time for testing in anticipation of high demand

STERLING, Va., October 17, 2001 - NeuLevel, Inc., the exclusive registry operator for the .BIZ top-level domain, today announced that the .BIZ Registry, will not go live on October 23, 2001 as previously scheduled. The new go-live date is Wednesday, November 7 at 00:00:01 U.S. Eastern Standard Time, at which time new registration requests will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.

"NeuLevel is taking extra care to ensure our systems will support the early go-live demand," said Doug Armentrout, CEO of NeuLevel, Inc. "Due to the significant recent market demand for the new TLDs, including .BIZ, we concluded that we needed extra time to test our systems in conjunction with our registrar channel partners. We are determined to turn up our live registry service with a system that can accept the market's demand, regardless of the amount of traffic generated."
