Happy New Year !!! (???)

Happy New Year !!! (???)

It looks like .tel begins 2014 with its 22ND MONTH OF CONSECUTIVE DECLINES!

Most are speculators that continue to dump the old .tel domains of course.

May 2014 continue to bring better registrants with Telnames and finally the development of an exclusive Telnames Directory void of old .tel and those garbage subdomains! 

(An official Telnames Directory by Telnames of course)

Nowhere to go but up for a real listing in a real directory!

Happy New Year for all!

GoTel,
do you keep all your domains intact?

I remember that you had a lot of them, and it were mostly two-words domains with dashes (http://telnic.org/community-story-vanderhorst.html): "At the time of writing this, I now have over 400 .tel domains registered, all during the Landrush and General Availability periods".

Have you sold some of them?

Maxi, you still mistake me for someone else.

Best wishes and good luck!


Added:

I feel sorry for him if he does have 400+ domains today.

Additionally, as I look at vanderhorst.tel and all the connecting links, I see that there are a combination of old .tel and telnames.

I don't think I would be trashing old .tel if I had a personal .tel and a business .tel with a Trademark and a major directory that uses old .tel worldwide!  At least it's a good use of one, there are so few.

It wasn't programmed by Telnames, but it's an attempt to display only active and valid data:

No related information.
How is .tel going on?
If no process from telnic,I just give up step by step.

Don't worry! Everyone has reduced his portfolio dramatically.

Only one person is left: Mark is selling Telnames locally in Aurora, Ontario. Probably the last try to save his Tel investment.
It's the last battle between David and Goliath (or between Mark and sleeping Telnic).

TEL-domains have a negative value - the more of them you have, the more money each year you lose on their renewals.

I personally have corrected my strategy and have reduced the number of my TELs to a level at which I practically do not notice financial loses they bring me.

Of course, the other situation could be with people who have 1000+ or even more of TELs and who pay annually tremendous sums of money for keeping them.
