"What's in a name?" Everything according to Web-a-dex. During the last two
months, Web-a-dex Internet Services of San Antonio, Texas has tripled its
ownership of domain name intellectual property rights. Today, the company
released a list of 19 domain name registrations that it now holds, along
with an informal estimate of appraised value on 16 of the names.

Recent confirmed sales of domain name property rights at $7.5 million and $3
million, plus numerous other high dollar name transfers, have fueled the
embryo internet domain name "real estate market". The brokering of domains
has made what are technically intellectual properties, words, into the new
"Internet Real Estate".

Web-a-dex has invested in finance related names along with several names in
the field of language translation. The communications industry was another
area of name purchases.

The released appraisal values are only estimates cautioned Web-a-dex owner,
Michael Steenbergen. Echo(arts) is an independent domain broker and
appraiser, and provided the valuation for the company. Echo(arts) uses four
criteria to establish the value of a name. Quoting Echo(arts):

"ECHO(arts) appraises domain names on Commercial Development Potential, Name
Recognition, Length and Extension Value ... The results of that formula are
then compared to recent market conditions for domain names."

Steenbergen added that this is not a formal or certified MBIE appraisal and
that the numbers should be viewed as only an estimate of value derived from
one independent web appraisal group. The total estimated valuation of the
names came in between $275,000 on the low end and $800,000 on the high end.
The difference in estimated low and high valuation is based on future
potential development and market pressures.

Web-a-dex Internet Services owns the following domain name registrations.
