Dot VN Begins Registration for Exclusive Industry Domains Service

SAN DIEGO, March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dot VN, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Dot VN" or the "Company") (www.dotVN.com), (OTC Bulletin Board: DTVI), an Internet and Telecommunications Company and the exclusive online global domain name registrar for the Country of Vietnam, announced today that it has begun the sunrise period for registering its new "Industry Domains" exclusively managed by Dot VN. The Vietnam Internet Network Information Center ("VNNIC") has granted to Dot VN the exclusive rights to register twenty-four industry specific sub-domain names ("Industry Domains") to be managed directly by Dot VN. The goal of Dot VN's Industry Domain service is to create the leading resource for Vietnamese businesses and customers, both domestically and worldwide, to find each other. This new service allows a ".VN" domain registrant to register sub domains under the new Industry Domains which includes "banks.vn", "hotels.vn", "fashion.vn", "it.vn", "arts.vn" and "cars.vn". Thus, for example, customers will be able to register and be listed on Dot VN's directory "[bank name].banks.vn" or "[company name].business.vn" based on their particular industry. This service creates a single definitive destination for potential customers to find the goods and services they need in Vietnam. Currently, Dot VN is the only registrar authorized by the VNNIC to offer this additional level of service.

The Industry Domain service is in the sunrise period, which will run until May 31, 2009, during which time registrants who own trademarks can register a domain name containing their owned mark. Beginning June 1, 2009, all sub domains within the Dot VN Industry Domain service will be open for general registration. The Industry Domain service will be offered at 100 USD per sub domain per year. A full list of all 24 Industry Domains is available for review at www.vn/vnnic/vnnic/industrydomains.jsp.

"The Industry Domains that Dot VN exclusively manages are extremely valuable. The sub-domains for these industries will add greater value to clients who intend to expand and generate more visibility and traffic to their websites. Dot VN will manage, market and create a highly integrated network of .VN sub-domains to generate greater revenue for the Company." said Thomas M. Johnson, Dot VN's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
