DomainPeople Opens .Tel General Registration with Prices that are 90% from Landrush Rate

DomainPeople, Inc., the eighth official domain name registrar accredited by the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), has begun registering .tel domain names under the general registration period. When registration officially opened on Tuesday, March 24, 2009, registration prices dropped 90% from the premium Landrush rate.

"If you haven't registered your .tel domain name yet, now is the time to do it," said Chris Kruk, product manager at DomainPeople. "Registration is now open to anyone, and names are awarded on a first-come, first served basis. So the sooner you register, the better your chances of getting the domain name you really want."

A revolutionary new top-level domain (TLD), .Tel gives owners the power to control and distribute their contact information. Businesses can use it as an online listing, accessible from the popular search engines, to drive customers to their Web site or storefront. Individuals can use it to stay in touch with family, friends and online acquaintances.

.Tel is different from other of top-level domains (TLD), such as .com and .net, because it stores contact information directly in the domain name system, shortening response times and eliminating the need for a Web site.

Some of the benefits of having a .tel domain name include:

  • Cost savings with no Web hosting or design required
  • Revenue potential with ad opportunities for industry-specific .tel portals
  • Inexpensive marketing opportunity for making businesses easy to find on mobile devices and Internet-connected computers
