Tzolkin Corporation and iMatix Corporation join forces to integrate TZO Dynamic DNS technology with Xitami, a popular Open Source web server.

Pepperell, MA (February 1, 1999) - Tzolkin Corporation and iMatix
Corporation announced today that they have developed a web server with an
integrated Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS).  The TZO Dynamic DNS allows
users with a Dynamic IP address to host a website by creating a permanent
domain name.

iMatix has incorporated Tzolkin's unique DDNS technology into the popular
Xitami web server, which is currently listed on Internet.Com's Top 10
Server List for over 45 weeks.  Tzolkin's DDNS technology, branded as TZO,
solves a serious problem for home Internet users, namely that their
server's IP address changes with each connection to their ISP.  Tzolkin
currently offers a low cost Dynamic DNS Internet Service that allows
Dialup, Cable-modem, or xDSL to get a permanent server name instead of a
Dynamic IP address.  This service will be offered under the 'xitami.net'
domain beginning on February 1, 1999.  The users will get an initial 30-day
free trial, and users can purchase the service for only $24.95 per year.

Gary Cook, President of Tzolkin Corporation says "Our Dynamic DNS
technology allows a cable modem, xDSL or dialup user that is stuck with a
Dynamic IP address to get a permanent Internet domain name.  Typically,
this problem is what holds many home or small business users back from
operating their own web server on the Internet."

Pieter Hintjens, CEO of iMatix feels that this product will be a
breakthrough for home and business users that want to run their own web
server.  "This is a great match, because the home user can now get a fixed
domain name even when their IP address changes frequently."  See
