I’ve mentioned the .tel domains a couple of times in the past.
Today at 3pm finally sees the arrival of “general registration” when anyone who wants to grab a .tel domain will be able to do so on a “first come, first served” basis without paying “over the odds”.
You will be able to order a .tel domain via our website from 3pm today onwards at a cost of EUR15 / year.
A couple of things to bear in mind:
- .tel does not support “normal websites”
- You cannot specify your own nameservers – all .tel domains will be hosted by Telnic
Dottel allows you to store and share information safe in the knowledge that only the people you want will get to see it.
For a live demo check out my personal .tel mneylon.tel
Unless I know you personally you won’t be able to access things like my mobile phone number or instant message contact details.
It will be interesting to see what kind of stuff people get up to with their .tel domains, but I suspect it will take a few months (if not longer) before we see some of the cooler applications.
If anyone has any questions about .tel please do let us know
