Dot VN, Inc. Achieves Vietnamese IDN Registration Historic Milestone; Retains The Eversull Group for IR/PR; Announces Mr. Thuy Le Nguyen to Company's Strategic Advisory Board; Signs Agreement With CSC Digital Brand Services

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2015) - Dot VN, Inc., (www.DotVN.com) (OTC PINK: DTVI), the pioneer Internet domain name registrar (www.VN) for the Country of Vietnam and the exclusive registrar for the Vietnamese Native Language Internationalized Domain Names ("Vietnamese IDN"), announced today an update on the Company's recent activity.

Previously on April 28, 2010, the Vietnam Internet Network Information Center ("VNNIC") granted Dot VN, Inc. an exclusive contract as both the co-registry and exclusive registrar marketing the Vietnamese IDN worldwide at a time when fewer than 3,500 IDNs had been registered. During August 2014, the Company was able to accomplish the historic milestone of increasing Vietnamese IDN registrations to over 1,000,000 which now makes Vietnam the fastest growing native language domain ccTLD in the world. Dot VN is in the process of working with VNNIC to monetize the Vietnamese IDN traffic of nearly 3,000,000 unique visitors per month.
