Integrating a .tel Domain Name Availability search

Post by Tely on Sun 28 Jul 2013, 9:09 am

The Telnames Wholesale API (WAPI) is a collection of services and tools that together provide an integrated platform for you to manage the full lifecycle and content administration of your .tel domains.

WAPI consists of a combination of SOAP-based APIs and user interfaces giving you maximum flexibility and control over the way you integrate .tel into your own product provisioning and billing systems.

This description covers the integration of a ‘.tel Domain Name Check’ allowing Value Added Resellers to integrate a ‘.tel Domain Name checker’ into their own web site, in turn allowing customers to search and confirm the availability of their required domain.



In order to integrate this functionality into your own site, please see below the required API calls and available responses.
