New .tel Domain Uses DNS to Store Personal and Business Data

Telnic Limited, the Registry Operator and Sponsoring Organization for the new sponsored top-level domain (sTLD) .tel, has just announced, at the ICANN meetings in Paris, the launch of its website and date when domain name registration will be accepted. According to the announcement, the sunrise applications from national trademark owners will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis as of Wednesday, 3rd December 2008.

The .tel will offer a service that allows individuals and businesses to store and manage all their contact information and keywords directly within the Domain Name System (DNS) without the need to build, host or manage a website. This service will include:

  • 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
  • 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

Telnic also states that the service addresses privacy and security concerns by allowing its users to have their data encrypted and only shared with people they authorize.
