System Allows Any Listed Organization to Have a Web Presence;
Enables Internet Users to Easily Find Any Business in the World

TIBURON, Calif. – November 3, 2000 – If you have a listed
business but are frustrated by not having an Internet presence,
or if you have ever spent hours trying to find an organization that
does not have a web site, the Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers (ICANN) could quickly be changing all
that.  Convening Nov. 13-16 in Marina Del Rey, Calif., ICANN will
be adopting for the first time in 15 years a handful of new global
Top Level Domains (gTLD) - such as .com, .net and .org – one of
which would have a large impact on enhancing and enabling
web presences and identities on the Internet. 

If its proposal is accepted by ICANN, dotYP will offer a highly
innovative online international directory service through a gTLD
that refines and scales information geographically as well as
incorporates context-sensitive searching capabilities within the
URL.  This will increase the number of unique identities on the
Internet for businesses with domain names as well as those
which do not or cannot obtain them.

For instance, if you own a Manhattan-based plumbing business
listed in the yellow pages directory, your business name and
phone number would automatically be displayed with other
plumbers in Manhattan when a user requests
“plumbing.Manhattan.yp.”  Using dotYP, a small business in
Bogata can now have a web presence and identity by registering
with the local business directory. The displayed page could also
provide a link to a website or to other information such as email

Frank Corsini, the CEO of dotYP, likened this concept to the real
estate constraints of the island of Manhattan.  “dotYP is similar to
enabling skyscrapers to be built in Manahattan to increase the
amount of available real estate,” said Corsini.  “Here at dotYP we
are increasing the name real estate and identities on the
Internet, globally.”

One of 47 potential gTLDs under consideration by ICANN, dotYP
is endorsed by Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer
and a member of the dotYP’s advisory board, who believes it
offers more than a typical registration system. 

“This proposal promises to truly democratize the Internet. It
meets the demands for expanding the traditional limits of
domain names in the most creative and counter-intuitive way,”
said Wozniak.  “dotYP creates a pie that can keep growing. It’s
not just slicing the pie differently. It’s much more than a new top
level domain.  It will not only change the way people search for
organizations on the Internet, it will allow everyone to participate
in the benefits of global communication, regardless of the wealth
or size of their homeland,” he said.

According to Corsini, “Other registration systems are limited by
the number of specific domains, creating competition limited to
the first, fastest, best informed and financially enabled. dotYP
adds their geographic location to create a unique identifier and
presence, enabling even the smallest business to have an
instant identity on the Internet. Anyone who has a business
telephone listing will be included.  In short, dotYP will provide a
public service, a commercial utility, a value-added resource, and
a boost for the Internet at large."

“dotYP was designed to respect intellectual property rights using
only listed names.  Our prime interest is to expand and empower
without conflicts of intellectual property or personal privacy
rights,” Corsini added.
