SAN DIEGO, Dec. 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot VN, Inc. ( www.DotVN.com ) (OTC Trading Symbol:DTVI) an innovative Internet and Telecommunications Company and the exclusive online global domain name registrar for the Country of Vietnam, announced today that it has completed a redesign of the English section of http://en.www.INFO.VN/ , a website intended to be the ultimate Internet portal that will aggregate and organize everything that the Vietnamese Internet has to offer. The goal of the INFO.VN English site is to create a simple and user friendly way for Non-Vietnamese speaking users to access the latest news, entertainment and information on Vietnam in one central and easy to navigate website. Additionally, any unregistered .vn domain name (e.g. www.randomdomain.vn , www.anydomain.vn ) that is accessed outside Vietnam will automatically be directed to the new INFO.VN English page.

"Our approach in the redesign was to create a cleaner, refined and more streamlined look to the English page. We believe that the new page surpasses all of those criteria and will make using INFO.VN more enjoyable and intuitive for our users," said Dot VN CEO Thomas Johnson.

Dot VN has also completed development of an online business directory and is now moving into the beta testing phase. The online business directory, available at: http://en.www.INFO.VN/directory.html , allows users both in Vietnam and internationally to find leading companies, products and service providers in Vietnam. Each listing provides a summary of the featured company, contact information, user reviews, photos and more. In order to spur rapid adoption, Dot VN will offers the basic listing service to companies and service providers for free and plans to offer premium services in the coming year which will include premium listings, online coupons, e-commerce functionality and online booking.

"We strongly believe that our online directory will become the top resource for guiding consumer behavior," said Johnson.  "Our online business directory will allow users to better compare products and services and provide feedback to other potential customers, which allows them to get the most value for their money. For our corporate clients we offer greater visibility and customer access and in the near future we will be able to offer them a completely new way to market themselves to clients both in Vietnam and Worldwide."
