Is Telnames a success or a failure?

Post by ixida on Thu 29 May 2014, 5:50 am

These are the numbers:

  • Telnic has 138,000 registered domains (high: 334,000) after more than 5 years (tendency: falling fast).
  • Telnames has 11,000 registered domains (high: 11,000) after more than 2 years (tendency: stagnant since 1 1/2 years).
  • Today 6,710 domains from Telnames are indexed by Google.

Question: Does Telnames perform good or bad? What is your opinion?

It might be ok if they allowed sub-domains and more content. Otherwise it's a turkey.

Telnames is on the road to success just like white/yellow pages because:

1. It allows no subdomains.
2. It is the best profile for a business or individual available in the marketplace, with its own direct access address, the domain name itself.

Telnames is on the road to failure unlike white/yellow pages because:

It has no Telnames directory for these profiles to be easily found and viewed in.

This is the entire reason .tel existed in the first place by design, and currently a failure as the world's first telephone directory online as pitched to ICANN and the world.

FOLLOW THROUGH ON YOUR ORIGINAL PROMISES AND TELNAMES IS GOLD.

As far as UK businesses go - according to my experience of actually using it and of businesses experience of getting customers (which is usually the point of buying a domain name) - this web site best achieves the objective of bringing buyer and seller of trade services together - http://www.checkatrade.com

You will notice that they have now expanded "Checka" into other sectors as well.

The businesses I have used from http://www.checkatrade.com only care about one thing - getting customers - the rest of it, including owning their own domain name, to them is just "fluff".

Just thought a dose of pragmatism might come in useful on this thread !

Those percentages, abysmal as they are, get even worse if you consider the fact that today the indexed (by Google) figure for Telnames is just 6,630 domains !

Undoubtedly Telnames is a great success. Telnames is a great model for any company that shows that no successful business can be made ​​without customer orientation and without product benefits. We all can only learn from Telnames and try to avoid the same mistakes!

Good question! Would it have been possible to rescue .tel if Telnic would have developed a working product instead of wasting time with Telnames? What if Telnic would have added the Telnames template inside the Telnic control panel including long text fields and including subdomains (as always and repeatedly required)?

We'll never know, because Telnic would need 20 more years for it!

Those who have Telnames TELs be careful: people say that Telnames began to renew domains before the time of their expiration.

The best option is to select manual renewal.

No; as long nobody cares about .tel, the best option is to let them expire.
