another hungover New Year's Day? The dreaded year 2000 (Y2K) bug is on its way--but how
big a pest will it really be? CNET's Special Report gives you all the resources you need

There are well over one and a half million names currently registered in .COM. Most desirable names are already taken.
To relieve the chronic shortage of names in the .COM, .ORG, and .NET domains, TABNet is now making available the .CC and the .TO top-level domain for web sites and email. Unlike alternative domain names, the .CC and .TO names are now fully operational in all name servers worldwide, exactly like the .COM names.
Until now, the name shortage situation has been a frustration for consumers and ISPs alike, as people really need the best possible domain name for their businesses on the Web. TABNet is helping to provide our customers with the names they need. This may be your last chance to acquire your domain name of choice.
By integrating Cocos Keeling Island's .CC and The Kingdom of Tonga's .TO top level domain into TABNet's registration services, the entire Internet now has quick and easy access to some of the best names the Web has to offer.
