As it is explained further in our application, HEXAPʹs experience in
managing domain name platforms has been generated in the context of the
activities of PROMOPIXEL, of which HEXAP is a spin-off company, and in
particular in relation to PROMOPIXELʹs product called SMALLREGISTRY.

Since 2009, the SMALLREGISTRY platform allows members of the medical
profession in France to register domain names in following second level

- medecin.fr (for physicians);

- chirurgiens-dentistes.fr (for dentists); and

- pharmacien.fr (for pharmacists).

Given the above, the team that has recently established HEXAP is already
equipped to handle the anticipated technical environment and operational
aspects that have been contemplated in this application for the .MED gTLD.
Currently, the SMALLREGISTRY product already encompasses all functionalities
required for the .MED gTLD, in particular as regards:

- the operation of a so-called Medical Clearinghouse;

- the operation of a domain name management platform;

- verification of registrants;

- dealing with registrars;

- etc.

Given the fact that there is a clear and continuous need for individuals to
obtain genuine information, products and services in relation to diseases and
health care, one of the cornerstones of the offering of the .MED TLD is clearly
to establish a platform for fulfilling these needs in the near and distant
future. Although no guarantees are given by the Registry Operator as regards the
accuracy of information, or the effectiveness of products or services that are
offered, it will at least provide for a trusted platform for qualified
professionals and entities to communicate with individuals and patients.
