(Oslo, 9 October 2000) Nameplanet.com, the world’s largest owner of domain names, is the first operator in the world to offer personal web addresses like www.john.doe.com – completely free. The company is also announcing a partnership agreement with Mamut, where Nameplanet.com’s 700,000 users are offered a free, professional website.
– Nameplanet.com’s vision is to give ordinary people a personal service on the net. The partnership with Mamut gives our 700,000 users an excellent opportunity to create their own websites with great results, says Lars-Odin Mellemseter, Nameplanet.com’s CEO.
Since the launch of Nameplanet.com in February, users of the service have had the pleasure of using their own personal e-mail address Firstname@Lastname. The service from Nameplanet.com allows people to communicate on the net with an unforgettable address like firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now Nameplanet.com is taking the idea one step further. Users can now also get a personalized web address for their website; www.john.doe.com.
