If you’re interested in playing around with .tel domains, then head on over to their “playground“, where you can signup for a free vip.tel subdomain.
The VIP program allows you to see how a .tel domain can work and some of the things that you can do with it, though with something as flexible as a domain name it’s impossible to know what people may get up to in the end.
In any case I had a chat with Adrian Weckler in The Sunday Business Post last week, which led to this article in the Sunday Business Post. Just to clarify one point, as some people seem to have misunderstood me, I never suggested that .tel would be a flop – I’m just naturally cautious about how quickly it will be adopted. I hope the takeup is huge, because I love the concept.
