"Not all TLDs will fail. But here’s why yours will." ... "... Consider .tel ..."

Ok, here's some good news - .TEL isn't failing !

2.) If you want to navigate through domains voice-controlled (e. g. with SIRI), you can do it only with .tel domains.

3.) If I want to keep an overview about all my personal login data of all websites where I am registered, where else I can save these information beside in .tel domains?

4.) If you want to open a website, instead of typing the IP address you type the domain name.
If you want to call somebody, instead of dialing the phone number you dial the name of that person with letters in the future, too.
Since mobile phones and internet are merging, the DNS is the perfect solution for this.

5.) Facebook with all the concerns about data privacy is scary. The better social networking will work on domain base.

6.) If you want to specify which data you want to share with others, which other tool allows you to modify the sharing of your data for every single contact different beside .tel domains?

7.) Everybody has a phone number today. In the future everybody will have also a domain name, but not everybody needs a website. For these people a .tel domain is the best fit.

8.) After full introduction of IPv6 every customer will have several IP addresses for himself, for his family, for his car, for his refrigerator, for his PC, for his cell phone, for his television and so on. You have to bundle them with your .tel domain, because it could be the only switch for all of them.

9.) 7 billion people are living on this planet. Excluding commercial domains perhaps only 1 % of them own their personal domain on the internet.
If the other 99 % register their domain and only 1 % of them decide to choose a .tel domain, we have already 70 million .tel domains (almost as much as we have .com domains today).

But before you count on my vision above: remember this is just wishful thinking! Take it as my farewell gift!


M2M, in my home I´ll have the alarm, the TV, the frige, my car... all conect by internet, M2M, with a dottel.

Also the converge telecomunicación... In the fix, will use ENUM, in the mobile will use VoLTE, but if you want to joint the fix with the mobile, you need to use the dotte.[/size]

Phase 2 depends on "critical mass", as clearly stated by Henri, to get the Telcos etc interested.

We do not have, and on current projections looks like we never will have, critical mass !

If you look at http://www.hosterstats.com/DomainNameCounts2011.php you will see that .tel registrations have reached a plateau of 300K.

Say 10% are populated that gives 30K, perhaps two-thirds have a phone number in, that gives 20K.

I would estimate that a reasonable minimum figure for critical mass is 5,000,000 registrations with a phone number present.

5,000,000 divided by 20,000 means we are 0.4 % of the way towards "critical mass" i.e. just 99.6% to go !

You can argue with the detailed figures above, but the point I am making should be absolutely clear !

Total .tel Registrations 1 November 2011
The total .tel registrations figure for 1 November 2011 has just been added at http://www.hosterstats.com/DomainNameCounts2011.php.

The new total figure doesn't really change anything expressed in my post.
