Alternative DNS Impact if any?

Will this have any impact on us?

Not directly since all .tel registrars I have come across prevent you changing the Nameserver settings from Telnic's of a/d/n/s/t0.cth.dns.nic.tel.

But could do indirectly if the use of Alternative DNS systems enables other domains to replicate what .tel does in recording contact data in the DNS.

For the record a search for alternative dns brings up 113,000 results - Google is getting in on this development with theirGoogle Public DNS

As I keep stressing Time Is Of The Essence if .tel is to make it - sooner or later a viable technical alternative is likely to appear and .tel must have established itself as a globally-recognised extension desired and regularly used by "Joe Public" before this event occurs if it is to end up in anything more than the niche position it currently occupies.

.TEL will always hold the status of the ".COM of its extension type" including DNS publishing.

We have known for a long time that plans for others to emulate .TEL exist and will certainly continue to pop up as services of others.

They will not use the Domain Name Addressing approach, but even if they do, these ".Nets" and ".Orgs" and ".Etc" will have their "Me Too" label against the one and only .TEL !

Even Google has to take a "back seat" to .TEL's position as a pioneer in this space, no matter how things develop.

We would certainly like to have this mean something to the masses though, wouldn't we ?
