.tel allows customers to centralize all of their contact information within the only, real-time global directory. Users can store, update and publish all of their contact information, web links and keywords directly on the internet with their own unique .tel domain. It’s simple, fast and accessible from any Internet-enabled device, .tel provides a new internet standard to take full control over how and where people can reach you, whether you’re a business trying to reach potential customers or an individual.
.tel is the perfect solution to help you stay in contact with the world (via mail, email, phone, cell, fax, skype, instant messenger, social networking sites, and more), you can post all your contact information to one easily accessible place.
The .tel delivers:
The registry updates their files every six hours, so it may take up that long after purchase for a .tel domain to become active.
There are no restrictions, any person or business anywhere in the world can register a .tel domain name.
.tel not only gives you the flexibility to update your contact information on the fly, it also lets you control what information is publicly viewable. You can even segment which individuals have access to different pieces of your private information.
You can register .tel domain names for up to 10 years.
You may transfer a .tel domain just like any other gTLD, however, once the domain is in the account it will not become active until it is associated to a CTH account. In other words, it will lose the CTH account from the losing registrar.
All nameservers and host records are controlled by the registry, so no VAS can be used with .tel domain names at this time.
This information is required to set up the account in the Community Tel Hosting (CTH) area. A .tel account in the CTH will not resolve and the domain create will not complete the registration process until an account has been successfully created.
You can sell or transfer a .tel domain just as you would with other domain names.
The .tel is a service that allows individuals and businesses alike to store and manage all their contact information and keywords directly in the DNS without the need to build, host or manage a website. For more information, see .tel for businesses and .tel for individuals.
The value of a .tel domain lies with the ability to host personal (or corporate) contact information directly in the DNS, which can then be universally accessible. This stands in contrast to the typical use of the DNS for other TLDs, in which the DNS only provides a mapping between domain names and IP addresses.
With a .tel, you can:
A Naming Authority PoinTeR Record (or NAPTR) is a standard DNS resource record that allows storage of contact information (URIs) within DNS. They are defined in more detail as part of RFC 3403.
They are contained within a DNS server, such as BIND or PowerDNS.
The .tel domain is all about controlling the contact information held in the NAPTR records. The majority of common DNS servers support the storage of NAPTRs, but don't allow end-users to control them.
