Dot VN to Offer Customers Access to a Worldwide Network of Domains With Domain Names for Purchase

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - Dot VN, Inc. (http://www.DotVN.com) (OTCBB: DTVI), an Internet and Telecommunications Company and the exclusive online global domain name registrar for the Country of Vietnam, announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Key-Systems GmbH, a leading Internet services provider based in Zweibrücken, Germany, providing Top Level Domain (TLD) registration, management and reselling services.

In the agreement, Dot VN will now be able to offer customers access to 178 unique domains worldwide in the Key-Systems network as an official domain reseller. Dot VN resellers and individual customers will now be able to purchase not only ".vn" domain names, but also other ccTLDs such as ".de", ".jp", ".cn", ".asia" and ".eu" and generic TLDs (gTLDs) including .com, .net, .edu, .gov and .org.

"Our partnership with Key-Systems will allow our continuously expanding network of customers access to 178 unique TLDs worldwide available for purchase," said Thomas Johnson, CEO of Dot VN, Inc. "By offering a wider variety of TLDs, our network will now have a convenient way to purchase international and generic domains in addition to ".vn" domains. This access adds further value to the Dot VN brand as we seek to offer our customers a world-class resource for technology development at the individual, corporate and organizational levels."

Key-Systems currently manages more than 2.5 million domains names for customers around the world. As one of the few official members of DENIC e.G, the central register for the Top Level Domain ".de" for Germany, Key-Systems has direct access to the registration system and is able to provide applications in real time to the central register.

"As with all ccTLDs we offer, we always try to provide our customers with a direct registry access. By offering our services, we are looking forward to helping Dot VN explore the Vietnamese domain market," said Key-Systems CEO Alexander Siffrin.

Vietnam is the second fastest growing economy in the world, with a population of over 86 million people and a literacy rate over 90 percent. The U.S.-based International Data Group (IDG) forecasts that the Vietnamese IT market's spending will reach nearly U.S. $2.2 billion this year and over $3.5 billion in 2013 to become the IT market with the highest growth rate in Southeast Asia.
