Here's a great site as well.

Shows by Registrar how they're doing, and then the new gtld's below, and then when clicked on, who's doing well per new gtld.

.directory

Interesting, godaddy has more than half share of all the .directory registrations
No wonder they didnt want to sell .tel (directory) domains.

I'm guessing there's an add-on template "directory" hosting package just around the corner coming from godaddy. It won't be cheap though...but enticing enough for the other 50% of ?directory registrations to transfer to go daddy 

Put another way, already half the number of registered telnames

.webcam. Now that's one to watch. I hope they include a super great east to setup remote zooming/swivel camera with hosting add-on package!!!

Is this how things will go? The add-on hosting package offered to suit the type of domain?

So .tel is only being promoted now as a telnames and the hosting package is included. So that's really hard to go against the grain of what the global .tel is to be used as.

Like .travel? I think you need to commit to be part of a global .travel network and are given a travel based web hosting package.
At least from memory I think that's how it went

That's the only way how .tel can be rescued: a partnership with a major player (a BIG telco) that includes a .tel into a customer package by default.
Unfortunately I don't see it coming.

Looks like .club might be the new gtld hero.

Over 30,000 in less than 2 days and rising fast.

We'll see if it can catch .guru anytime soon.

I stressed to Telnic the criticality to Tel's success of such an arrangement about 2 years ago on their forum.

Nothing happened as usual - though they did ban me permanently from the Telnic forum - advice, or even just ".telling it like it is" - tends to be frowned upon there !

If TelTalk forum members have access to the still "locked-down" Telnic forum they will see many posts there warning Telnic how ESSENTIAL it was to get their act together well BEFORE the NEW gTLDs hit the streets !

As usual the advice was ignored, now the problem is that however interesting the news is about .Tel it will simply get drowned out by the noise from the New gTLDs.

It appears Telnic will never listen to any advice - convinced they alone are always right - but a drop of well over 50% in total registrations from the peak in 2011 may suggest that this is not always the case !

Perhaps the internal controlling doesn't work at Telnic and nobody knows that the registrations are shrinking fast!

Sadly this is never ever going to happen anymore, now that big telco can lay a mere 100 grand on ICANN's table and setup dot bigtelco.

Easy was right.  .club is now in the number 3 position.

1) .guru
2) .berlin
3) .club

It's going to take some decent registrations to get to number one, but it looks like .club will be the new reigning champ soon.

Thousands more new gtlds to come, and too early to pick an overall winner, but it looks like .club will be the new one to beat over .guru soon.

.club - Now there's a gTLD in need of a Global Directory !

If any software developer had plans to commit resources to such a project, do you think he/she would choose .club or .tel ?

It's really a rhetorical question, to me the answer is obvious !

.expert jumps on the Top 30 board at #23 with over 9,000 first day.

Another winner in the making?

Telnic were warned so many times a year or two back, by myself and many other forum members (on Telnic and TelTalk forums), that they had to GET .TEL KNOWN BY "JOE PUBLIC" WELL BEFORE THE NEW GTLDS HIT THE STREETS !

They completely ignored all suggestions (as usual) and felt that somehow .Tel would suddenly become very much in demand !

It hasn't - period - and today has a pathetic 139,512 registrations against a 2011 peak of 333,891 !

Here's a statement I doubt anyone, including Telnic's Directors, can LOGICALLY disagree with:

If the .TEL concept hasn't achieved success after 16 YEARS Of EFFORT (Telnic were founded on 29 April 1998) and after using up most of the $35,000,000 OF SHAREHOLDERS MONEY then either:

1. The concept has no real mass appeal.
OR
2. The implementation of the concept has been handled badly.

You can probably guess which way I'd vote - what about you ?

Well now, let's just take a look at that objectively:

No mass appeal - Everyone appreciates updated contact information discovered easily from one source, proven every day.

Handled badly - In spite of the aforementioned reality, .tel is virtually unknown, and .tel registrants cannot be found easily in one source.

Hmmmm.  I would go with "handled badly" myself, as would any intelligent human being.

were going round and round with this.
we need to stop and think why are you are still interested in dot tel after all this time.


for me, i think under a good team like what they have at dot club it may have a chance.
with all the new gtld being launched i did think this was a god send for telnames and they would re invent themselves yet agin and maybe this time do what there customers want.

But they have give up now and more interested in fiction on amazon Ebook store.
A few twitters " good morning its happy friday" and thats your lot!

very very sad.

Yes, .club has a big advantage over .tel and other TLDs:

They are PREPARED for that challenge and many others are not. They can make a coherent case for why some folks would use a .club. It may or may not happen. But they know what their job is and they take it seriously.

.tel doesn't have such a team!

The article also mentions that the .CLUB guys have employed the services of the top domain consultancy Right Of The Dot, set up by industry experts Monte Cahn & Michael Berkens, to ensure .CLUB becomes a success.

I have requested Kash pick up the phone and speak to them several times over the last year or two - but nothing actually happens !

Telnic will argue: ".club has only 41,000 registered domains, but .tel has 139,000. Hence .tel is better than .club!"
Of course, in a very short time it will be the other way around.

Michael Gilmour really does .tel it like it is in the above article when he says:

“They have seen .info and .biz get abused by spammers, .travel and .xxx fall in a heap, .mobi become obsolete, .tel fail altogether, .asia lie desolate and even the promising (privately-owned) .co.nl fail to get off the ground.

But can anyone LOGICALLY argue with his conclusion ?

For those who are not aware, TheDomains.com, where the article was published, is a well respected domain name industry blog run by Michael Berkens, co-founder of top domain consultancy Right Of The Dot which is helping .CLUB to succeed.

Right Of The Dot could do the same for .TEL if only Kash would pick up the phone and ask for their proven expertise in the mass-marketing of domain names !

This employment of domain marketing experts to ensure a gTLD's success seems to be working very well - after just a brief period since launch .CLUB is already No. 2 in the New gTLD rankings and chasing after .GURU at No. 1 rapidly - see http://registrarstats.com/TLDDomainCounts.aspx
