NEW YORK, Feb. 3 /CNW/ - Telnic Limited (http://www.telnic.org), the
registry operator for the new .tel top level domain, today announced that all
free trial VIP.tel test domains have now been updated to support Profiles and
now contain all of the major elements of the personal functionality available
when .tel domains go live.
This new release enables people to share 'sets' of contact information in
their domain by grouping them under Profiles. These profiles are user defined
and can reflect different information according to the situation the .tel
owner is in at that time. As an example, a .tel owner may set up a profile for
'home', 'work', 'travelling' or 'on vacation', all of which reflect different
contact methods or priorities of contact information when someone accesses the
domain. This enables the owner to quickly change the 'status' of his .tel
domain by switching on and off and reorganizing contact information, including
private contact information, with the click of a mouse or the press of a
screen or button on a mobile device.
Telnic has also developed applications for mobile devices including the
iPhone and the BlackBerry that enable people to change their Profile with one
quick click, changing the contact information view instantly.
"Profiles provide the ability to manually or automatically change the
view of a .tel domain according to the time of day or activity that the domain
owner undertakes," explains Henri Asseily, CTO and Chief Strategist at Telnic.
"This adds the ability for people trying to contact the owner of the domain to
understand the options that are available and the preferred methods of contact
that a .tel owner wants them to use at any time of the day. Now, even from my
mobile device, I'll be able to change the contact information that people see
when I'm jumping on a plane or moving from home to the office in seconds."
VIP.tel domain names will continue to be made available for individuals
wishing to register them for testing purposes from http://www.telnic.org/vip
until February 2009 at which time the ability to apply for a VIP.tel domain
name will be closed. VIP.tel domains are available purely for testing
Trademark holders can purchase .tel domains already. Everyone else can
purchase them from February 3rd 2009. Further details about buying a .tel
domain can be found from http://www.telnic.org/business-buy.html.
