.TEL - Communications(not yet available)
Online Domain Name Extension Directory
Meaning: .Tel is intended to be a real-time communications hub for businesses and individuals. By typing in a .tel domain the user will be presented with all the currently available options to contact the person or business - telephone, fax, voicemail, email and so on. The domain owner can update which devices are enabled either manually or automatically during the day.
Domain Name availability: Expected to be open to all businesses and persons.
Registry: telnic.org (active)
nic.tel (not yet online)
Official whois listings: whois.nic.tel (not yet available).
Price: Probably under $10 at most registrars.
An example of a .tel site is online at Ben.tel .
It appears .tel domains will be hosted by the registry, as a part of the fee. It does not appear that much additional text or any images will be permitted. The samples given are very restricted in content. No doubt additional content will eventually be available for a greater fee.
Here is the announced schedule for the roll out of .tel. Be aware that these dates may change:
Sunrise (registrations reserved for trademark owners) : December 3, 2008 - February 2, 2009
- Landrush (registrations open to all at a premium price) : February 3, 2009 - March 23, 2009
- General availability (registrations open to all) : from March 24, 2009
Domain investors should be aware that the .tel extension is a very different commodity from existing extensions, as it does not support owner-created websites. The future marketability of the extension, and what sectors will experience demand, is highly speculative. Buying a significant quantity of .tel domains for resale should be considered only by advanced domainers.

Some information is from the official (dot tel gTLD) registry. Individual registrar price lists will vary greatly. It is recommended that you contact several registrars for their price on each domain name before you buy. Only information you find at a website from the registry or e-mail sent by them can be assumed to be accurate, and sometimes not even that.
