If I visit the website above and I register as a customer, I expect to create a similar website. What is in for me as customer if the service provider shows off with a great website, but I can't have the same thing?
The website from Telnames inspires me to create a similar website for myself! Can I do that with a .tel?

If Telnames is able to promote .tel only with a .com, it's a clear statement that it's impossible to sell anything only with a .tel!
As soon Telnames is able to create a website to attract customers under a .tel, then we know .tel has something beneficial to offer!

Please ask yourself the following questions and you know everything about .tel you need to know:
Is it possible to attract customers with www.telnames.tel (instead of www.telnames.com )? Could Telnames sell domains only with www.telnames.tel ?

Tim, to be fair to Telnames their home page at http://www.Telnames.com clearly shows using the video what you are getting for your money - I don't think anyone could be led to think they are getting anything more than that !

This is also backed up by their example site http://YourBusiness.tel and their own Telnames .tel at http://Telnames.tel

Right, but why should I register a .tel if the technology for a .com exists somewhere else? I rather spend $100 per year and publish a complete website (desktop and mobile).

Because .tel is not meant to be a replacement for a web site - it's purpose, as stated many times by Telnic/Telnames CTO Henri, is to be a SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT FOR ALL YOUR WEB IDENTITIES THAT WORKS SEAMLESSLY ON ALL INTERNET DEVICES.

Mike is right. The website from Telnames.com is really great. Check out this flash tool:



You have to visit www.telnames.com/what-is-a-dot-tel to use it.

But two things irritate me:
Why can't Telnames develop such eyecatcher for .tel domains, too? A great product should be more important than great marketing!
What does Telnames mean when mentioning "rich content"? I can't find rich content on a .tel!

Telnames must have the image gallery and the video in mind, but not the amount and variety of content.
