Telnic Limited, the registry operator for the new .tel top level domain (TLD) already described by Fortune/CNN as “The Google of online phone books” today reminded businesses with trademarks that there were only fifteen working days left to protect their .tel domains in the Sunrise period.
.tel enables you to store, update and publish all your contact information, web links and keywords directly on the internet under your own unique domain name. Simple, fast and accessible from any device, .tel provides a new internet standard to take full control over how and where people reach you. The .tel delivers:
- integration of any and all means of communication (i.e. Phone numbers, IM, VoIP, email, social media);
- real-time publishing of your contact information on the internet;
- full ownership of your published data;
- protection of your private data, only viewable by people you authorize;
- simple structured navigation to easily reach the most relevant information;
- high speed global access optimized for mobile devices;
- multi-language, search engine-friendly structured information and keywords;
With thousands of brand owners having already applied for .tel domains which provides, amongst other features, a ‘live’, global, mobile-optimized directory service listing with unlimited contact information and key words, companies need to act fast in order to secure the names they have rights to before registration is open to all in the Landrush period on Tuesday February 3rd 2009.
Registration is available through over 100 ICANN-accredited Registrars in a first come, first served manner. Brand owners are in danger of missing the boat if they leave registration until the Landrush period in February.
