.tel Continues Momentum With Over 200,000 Domains Registered

    Milestone Achieved Within Two Months of Public Launch

    NEW YORK, May 20 /CNW/ - Telnic Limited (http://www.telnic.org), the
registry operator for the new communications-focused .tel top level domain
(TLD) nominated for a 2009 World Technology Award and InfoCommerce Group 2009
Model of Excellence Award, today announced that over 200,000 registrations of
domains had been received within two months of General Availability.
    "This is a truly remarkable milestone considering current economic
conditions and with the attention of the world on global events, but proves
that a simple but compelling service under the control of the individual has
significant potential," said Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnic.
    "As early adopters start using the .tel as their single point of contact,
more and more individuals and businesses are seeing that it's an incredibly
useful way to manage the complexity of communications choices in one single
place online."
    The success and momentum of .tel continues as new resellers start to
address their specific audiences with the benefits of .tel, from German
directory services specialist iWelt (http://www.iwelt.de/) through to new
directory services entrants such as US-based Industrial Web Search
    Mahdavi adds: "The innovations that the community around the .tel is
building means that every day we are seeing new purposes and opportunities for
revenue generation, from individuals promoting themselves with the .tel
domains online through to large organizations completely refreshing their
existing business models fuelled by .tel technology. It's an exciting time for
us and one that many still have the opportunity to participate in. This is
just the beginning."
