    Steve Hotz Named Chief Technology Officer of New.net(TM)

    Leading Technologist and DNS Pioneer Joins Domain Name Registry to Drive
    Innovation and New Product Offerings

    SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- New.net
    ( http://www.new.net ), a domain name registry created to meet the market
    demand for Web addresses with logical, easy-to-remember extensions, today
    announced the appointment of Steve Hotz as Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
    Mr. Hotz joins New.net with over fourteen years experience in technology
    research and development, twelve of which have been involved in the technical,
    operational, and policy aspects of the Domain Name System (DNS). His
    extensive background in the technology community, and the DNS in particular,
    began in 1988 as a Ph.D. student working at the University of Southern
    California's Information Sciences Institute (ISI), one of the country's
    premier "think tanks" and birthplace of several Internet technologies,
    including the DNS.
    While at ISI, Mr. Hotz worked with Dr. Jon Postel, considered widely to be
    the "father of the Internet" and the founder of the Internet Assigned Numbers
    Authority -- the precursor to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
    Numbers (ICANN).
    Prior to New.net, he served as the founding CTO of UltraDNS, a company
    that defined an entirely new market space, delivering advanced, service-based
    solutions for global, directory-enabled applications. Today, Mr. Hotz is well
    recognized among industry peers for his experience in routing protocols,
    naming and directory services, and large-scale server systems.
    "Steve brings to New.net substantial technical experience in our industry
    and depth of understanding of DNS infrastructure," said David Hernand, CEO of
    New.net. "With his impressive track record of developing innovative, patented
    technologies and products utilizing the DNS, we expect that Steve will play a
    critical role in driving New.net's continued innovation in Internet navigation
    products and services."
    Mr. Hotz holds a B.S. in Computer Science from Bowling Green State and an
    M.S. from the University of Southern California, where he is a Ph.D. candidate
    pending submission of the final draft of his dissertation.

    About New.net
    New.net ( http://www.new.net ) is the leading innovator in Internet addressing,
    and is best known for its efforts to build the Internet's leading market-
    driven domain name registry business by selling domain names with logical,
    easy-to-remember domain name extensions that make the Internet easier to
    navigate. Headquartered in Sherman Oaks, California, the company was started
    in May 2000 by idealab!, a leading Internet incubator. ISPs around the world
    now provide access to New.net domain names through a simple network upgrade.
    New.net also distributes a small software application that provides access for
    those Internet users whose ISPs have not yet upgraded their networks. Both
    methods work within the existing Internet infrastructure and currently enable
    over 100 million Internet users worldwide to view the new domain names.
