Comming Soon
The domain that connects people.
There are dozens of different ways to contact someone today. Between social networks, phones, addresses and websites, it’s hard to know which is the right way to reach out. And if you can’t get ahold of someone on one channel, will you know how to find them on an alternative? Fortunately, there’s .tel, the domain that puts your contact information front and center. As of March 13, 2017, owners of a .tel domain can now use any kind of hosting, opening up the possibilities for creative ideas. Today it’s an anything-you-want-it-to-be domain, just like .com, but focused on contact information. Originally, dot tel domains were designed to instantly identify your website as a place to find all the ways to connect with a person or organization. Any website registered with .tel was hosted by Telnic on their TelHosting platform. Typically, these one-page websites would contain:
  • Phone number (work and/or personal)
  • Website address
  • Email address
  • Facebook link
  • Twitter link
  • Linked In link
  • Professional profile links
  • Home address
  • Work address
  • Associations
Today, a .tel domain tells the world all the same things, except now it’s in any format you like, using any host you want.
Your domain, your style.
Now, dot tel is the domain for everyone. If you want a virtual business card on the web (with as many details as you like), or want a space where people can reach out to your company, this is for you. It works equally well for personal branding purposes and corporate contact info. All those things make it a great destination for your ideas, as well as all your contact information.
Keep in touch.
It’s important to have a presence on the web, be it for yourself or your business. Owning a dedicated location where visitors can contact you on any platform is great for SEO value, excellent for visibility and a good way to protect and legitimize your brand. In short, .tel is your way to tell the world who you are and how to connect with you in one centralized location. And in a world where making connections is becoming more and more difficult, this is an easy solution.

.TEL DNS Restrictions Lifted

News letter from Dynadot.com ( Wed Mar 15 06:00:40 2017 ) Dear Customers, Thank you for choosing Dynadot as your .TEL domain registrar. Recently, you should’ve received notice from Telnic.org about their plans to lift DNS restrictions on .TEL domains. We wanted to remind you that as of yesterday, those restrictions have been lifted. What does this mean for you and your .TEL domain? .TEL’s usage is no longer restricted to Telhost’s directory. You can now set your .TEL domain’s name servers the same way you would for .COM and most other domains. This gives you the freedom to set up your .TEL domain the way you want. How do I set my name servers for my domain? What if I don’t want to set new DNS for my .TEL domain? The information you had set up in Telhost is not longer available; however, the .TEL registry has a new platform that you can access on ManageMy.tel. Please be aware that your .TEL domain is still set up to use Telhost’s name servers. Therefore if you have not already set up your ManageMy.tel account or changed your .TEL domain’s name servers, then your domain is currently empty. If you have any questions, you can either email our customer service team at info@dynadot.com or Telnic’s customer service team at cservice@telnic.org. Best, Team Dynadot dynadot.com

A New Policy For Tel Domains

News letter from name.com (Fri Mar 3 04:30:56 2017)
A new policy for .TEL domains
Hello Customers, Since you have .TEL registrations, we wanted to let you know about some pretty big changes going from the .TEL registry that affect how your domain can be used.
  • As of Mar. 13th, 2017 restrictions on .TEL will be lifted so you can use your .TEL domains however you’d like, rather than being required to use Telhosting.
  • The old Telhosting platform will be shut down on March 13, and features like search and subdomains will no longer work. If you want your data, you are advised to back up your domain data from the current platform using the BACKUP function as soon as possible and by the 12th of March 2017 at the latest.
  • A new Telhosting platform will take its place, and is now optional. The .TEL registry will email you directly with your account details. If you have questions regarding this, please email Telnic at cservice@telnic.org.
