Heard of .TEL? It’s pretty darn cool. It’s a low cost TLD that acts as a digital business card — a single point of contact that allows people to access all of your contact information on an easy to manage website. The best part is no hosting costs are required, everything is included in the cost of the domain, which Name.com happens to sell for just $9.99 $8.99!
Our friends from .TEL, Justin and Henri, were at Macworld to show off their two impressive (and open source!) iPhone apps that allow you to manage your .TEL domains and all of your .TEL contacts easily and quickly directly from your phone. My.TEL (app store link) is the domain management tool and Superbook (app store link) is the contact management tool. It’s pretty awesome to see how fast Superbook loads this information (even using the less than stellar 3G network in San Francisco), which is due to their clever use of DNS to transmit the data.
Check out this video to see just how fast the apps are and how easy it is to manage your sites.
Here at Name.com we’re big fans of .TEL and we take pride in the fact that we are the leading .TEL registrar. In addition to having the best prices, we offer extra management tools for your .TEL domain that you can’t find at any other registrar. Since .TEL can act also as a directory, Name.com allows you to add new accounts to your domain without giving them access to your main account, and that’s just one of the cool things you can do.
To take advantage of the $8.99 price, use the code MACWORLD when you checkout. We’ll be running that promo until the end of the month, so check it out and be sure to TEL us what you think. 😉
