    PASADENA, Calif., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 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 that
 make Internet navigation easier, today announced that Juno Online Services
 (Nasdaq:   JWEB) has joined the company's current, high-profile ISP partners.
     Juno has agreed to provide access to New.net domain names to all its
 subscribers.  Juno is one of the nation's largest Internet access providers,
 with 14.2 million total registered subscribers as of December 31, 2000 and
 4 million active subscribers in the month of December.
     Through the partnership, Juno's subscriber base will have access to
 New.net domain names along with current ISPs including EarthLink
 (Nasdaq:   ELNK), Excite@Home (Nasdaq:   ATHM) and NetZero (Nasdaq:   NZRO).  In
 addition to the ISP relationships, other consumers are gaining access to
 New.net domain names through distribution of a small piece of software that
 enables individual PCs to view these names.
     The company recently announced arrangements with five leading software
 download companies and expects to sign additional deals this week that will
 add to the total.  Combined, more than 40 million Internet users will soon
 have access to New.net domain names.
     "Increasing adoption and access to New.net domains is our top priority,"
 said David Hernand, CEO of New.net.  "Adding Juno Online Services to our
 growing roster of leading ISPs will give even more Internet users access to
 our popular domain names and continue the forward momentum begun at our launch
 just six weeks ago."
     Charles Ardai, Juno's CEO, said, "New.net is expanding the breadth of the
 Internet by making new domain extensions readily available.  Juno is pleased
 to be one of the first companies to help pave the way for acceptance."
     New.net has developed a proprietary approach, using software technology
 deployed at either the network level by partner ISPs or on individual PCs,
 that uses the existing Internet naming system to enable millions of users to
 gain access to new domain name extensions, including .shop, .mp3, .inc, .kids,
 .sports, .family, .chat, .video, .club, .hola, .soc, .med, .law, .travel,
 .game, .free, .ltd, .gmbh, .tech and .xxx.
     New.net will continue to develop strategic partnerships with ISPs of all
 sizes to continue to expand the availability of the new names at the network
 level.  ISPs that wish to add the ability to view the New.net domains can find
 instructions by visiting www.new.net.  Web users who do not use one of the
 partner ISPs can activate their Internet browsers to recognize the new domain
 names in a few seconds by visiting the same site.
