Starting on 2010-06-15 14:00 UTC, companies and individuals will be able to register IDNs in the TEL domain extension. Registrations will be on a first come first served basis and they will be available in the following languages: Chinese, Danish, Finnish, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish. Of course if you want to be a step ahead and make sure you get the name that you want, you can preorder your .TEL IDN with Name.com between now and the June 15 launch!
The launch of these new IDNs gives you an opportunity to secure your digital business card in your native language and for businesses this means an improved user experience for your customers and the opportunity to expand and maintain your brand in foreign markets.
It’s projected that by 2015 there will be 2.5 billion smartphone sales and in a world that’s going mobile, .TEL is thinking ahead. With this extension you can penetrate markets where people are primarily accessing the internet from smartphones and markets where English and ASCII are not primarily used. You can also fully manage your .TEL from your smartphone, making it easy and convenient to make changes on the fly.
Speaking of easy and convenient, remember that with .TEL no hosting costs are required. You just purchase the domain and you’re good to go! Setup can also be done in minutes, so if you’re looking for something low cost and low maintenance, then .TEL might just be the right solution for you.
