Dottels Are Almost Completely Useless

Post by TelBlogger on Tue 08 Apr 2014, 10:22 pm

Sure you can make some money with adsense but anything which generates revenue like Agoda is pretty much unusable because pictures of hotels etc can not be displayed next to affiliate links which themselves are not configured correctly to encourage people to click on them.

It really is a motherless mess of an extension that could be described fairly as the most useless domain ever invented. We were warned by pros 5 years ago to not touch this with a barge pole. We didn't listen and this extension has become one of the biggest failures in the history of the internet. 

It's too late to turn this abortion around even if Telnic could be replaced. The registrar  needs to start a wave of development by opening up the CTH. But they are so useless it's not going to happen - Drop, Drop Drop!!!

.tel can be used by people who don't want to own a website, don't want to spend time for the internet and don't want to be found on the web. You can see your registration fee as a donation to an incapable domain registry in United Kingdom.

Dottel would be very useful if it would be used as a phone directory.
Telnic wasn’t able to deliver it until today.
I can’t see the slightest steps into this direction.
Hence it doesn’t seem that it will ever come.

Tel isn't completely useless, but you can accomplish the same with any other domain, too:

If you want to publish only your phone number, you can do it with a .com for $10 or with Telnames for $20.95.

If Telnic don't want to invest any development effort, why don't Telnic make it open for developers outside Telnic?

Because they are Telnic.

That would generate effort, too. But the plan is to get big without effort or otherwise to wait and see!

They are using the Kamikaze Manual Of Business.
