LONDON, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Telnic Limited (http://telnic.tel), the registry operator for the .tel top level domain (TLD), today
announced that, following the ICANN board meeting conducted in January
2011, ICANN has now approved the release of both short (such as jj.tel)
and numeric-only (such as 442074676450.tel or 88.tel) .tel domain names
"I would like to thank the ICANN Board and Staff for considering our
recent applications and enabling more choice for businesses and
individuals when seeking to register their .tel domains," said
Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnic. "In the near future, organizations
with numeric-only trademarks or with two-letter brands will be able to
register their .tel names and individuals will be able to get unique or
lucky numbers as a fun online identifier."
Details of how to register short and numeric-only .tel names will be
made available in due course. One-character ASCII (such as x.tel),
single-digit (such as 3.tel) and names that may be confused with
country code top level domains extensions (known as ccTLDs, such as .us
or .uk) will not be available for registration.
Over 300,000 .tel names have been registered to date in over 180
countries. For more information on .tel names and Telnic, please visit
