New Drop Tool

New Drop Tool
There is a major drop Thursday of perhaps some 5,000 domains of which at least 1,000 are generic. There are some real gems in there. 

To make it easy to weed through the good and the bad, I've created a new drop tool that splits the domains up by generic words, phrases and other categories. Please order directly from the tool and you will get the very best price.

As a bonus for purchasing a domain through our name.com affiliate link, I will give you the Guest Book/Blogging app for one year. 

And I will also be giving early access to our new Geo Populate Tool to help you put structure into your new domains.

Great value all together, so I hope you do buy through us. 

Happy Hunting!


Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-01-2011 10:26 PM

The TelDomains.co site is part of Telmasters. We've split it into two so that TM will only be focused on tools while TD will be for sales. TelDomains has a cool tool calledIn-Tel-i-Match to help you create and find domains to suit your geographic and creative needs.


Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-02-2011 11:20 AM

Tomorrow's drops are not as impressive as today's but there are still over 100 choice generics and phrases like ...


A lot of great Yellow Page categories for geo directory building.


Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-03-2011 12:33 PM

Drop Status
Tomorrow's drops have been loaded into the drop tool. 
They include some nice phrases and long-tail keyword domains.

Yesterday a good deal of generic names were picked up ... 
cityhall.tel, franchises.tel, housekeepers.tel, healthclub.tel, termites.tel
some through the tool (thanks to the purchasers).

Don't forget about today's drops and still lots of great names available from June 2nd.


Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-04-2011 02:25 PM

June 4th update to Drops tool
I've updated the Drops Tool.
It now shows domains that have been registered and provides additional filters.
Out of 7,261 domains dropped in June, 223 have been registered by new owners.

As always, buy a domain here and get a free interactive guest book.


Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-05-2011 12:06 PM

June 4th Drop Stats
70+ dropped domains were picked up yesterday including some fabulous generic words. You can see what's available and what's been dropped via the drop tool atTelDomains.co

Oddly enough a couple of different buyers picked up WASH.tel, WOOL.tel, and SOAP.tel. Must be anticipating some upcoming trend.

Don't forget you can purchase domains too at TelDomains to help the cause and get your free interactive guest book as a bonus.


Shahid06-05-2011 12:30 PM

Thanks Mark, i was the lucky one to grab your tweet and click on it right away got loads of .tel
including Wash.tel Wool.tel and the best of all Mother.tel

Shahid, does this mean that you are paying $49.95 each?[/size]

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-05-2011 01:34 PM

No, $49.95 is if you request a back order via Name.com (no guarantees), but as the drop page suggests, wait until the day of the drop and pay $9.95. Back order is an option if the drop hasn't yet occurred or someone grabbed the domain before you. I will see if its possible to change the icon to "back order".


Shahid06-05-2011 01:34 PM

no i paid 9.99 for each, any domain you click and it takes you to name.com and you see 49.95 that means its gone and they charge you for backorder ( if the original seller decides to let it go at any stage in future name.com gets it for you. waste of time and money but then again i missed txt.me just because i didnt back order it )

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-06-2011 11:45 AM

June 5th Drop Stats
Looks like there were about 20 drops picked up yesterday including deli, fuji, divecenter. 

Look at the long tail phrases for faster SEO. A cool feature of the drop tool is that it breaks a tel name into its component words eg softwaredeveloper.tel = Software Developer. This lets you visualize the potential in any tel name.

Tomorrow has another bumper drop of almost 2,000 tels like BingoHalls, ChildCareServices, GreenCleaning, Patent Lawyer, Toy Store, Chemicals, Teachers.

For those building directories, the free geo tool takes 5-15 minutes for set up and 5-30 minutes run time using the bulk populate tool to create a ready-to-use directory framework. Almost 400 regions are supported in Canada and the USA.

As always, please click from the drop tool to get the best price ($9.99) and the small commission helps keep our popular tools free.



Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-06-2011 04:27 PM

Today's drops feature some travel destination themes for those with adventurous content ...

European Cruise(s)
Time Shares
Rain Forest
Calgary Stampede


Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-07-2011 11:58 AM

June 6th Drop Stats
June 6 had some 40+ nice drops picked up including LawnCare, BabySitters, Lot, Cottage, TimeShares.

Today we have another 2,000 tels like BingoHalls, ChildCareServices, GreenCleaning, Patent Lawyer, Toy Store, Chemicals, Teachers.

Dropping tomorrow are 1,400+ domains with many choice generics and phrases for you to examine on site.

As always, clicking from the DROP TOOL gets you the best price ($9.99) and the small commission helps keep our popular tools free.


Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-08-2011 12:33 PM

June 7th Drop Stats
Wow, over 150 dropped domains were picked up yesterday, so many ideal for YP caetgories. Check the listing at teldomains.co to see them as they are now greyed out.

Thanks for clicking from the DROP TOOL as that gets you the best price ($9.99) and the small commission helps keep our popular tools free. 

Today I am sure we'll see many more gone, like Adoptions, Choppers, Scrapbooks, Allergy Test, Land Surveyors. The drop tool is the only one that has phrases broken down into dictionary words for easy viewing.

Tomorrow's 1,900+ drops are available for preview now.


Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-09-2011 12:23 PM

June 8th Drop Stats
Just over 80 dropped tels were picked up yesterday and not necessarily the tels I predicted. They have been removed from the available drop list.

Today, look for more excellent domains with the drop tool, as well as preparing for tomorrow's very compelling set of drops.


Kartoshka06-09-2011 04:06 PM

With recent drops, i am somewhat confused about .tel total registrations chart AND .tel reputation on the broad market being unaffected. 

What really bothers me, is the amount of premium tels, being pushed out as lousy, which were picked in the following couple of days after general availability announcement, by skillful collectors and similar bottom hunters.

I hope (read "i am too emotional") really much that same phenomena won't happen or even resemble current with 2009-2012 sunrise and landrush regs (this time by semi- and true domainers + investors). 

I am convinced telnic team knows well they have to do something major to prevent this sort of carnage next year, otherwise it's a disaster for telnic biz. Their marketing heads must fly high next year, celebrating 3 years anniversary.... and trust voting.

For now, .tel (not the idea, but the action) feels like average pump & dump pennystock scheme. But just because I know (i pretend?) it isn't, i picked some dropped names, too. 

Anyways. dropping quality names is a sign of big weakness, damn weakness and disbelief, 
plus lack of patience. Telnic, please surprise us in the next 11 months.

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-09-2011 04:19 PM


When I looked at the names being dropped, I can see that many of them were pure speculation that any generic word would make someone lots of money on resale. For most, not the case. As with any new TLD, there were lots of domains grabbed, always the generics first. I am not at all surprised with these drops. In July we will see how many .co domains drop, and there will be many.


Kartoshka06-09-2011 07:07 PM

Mark, i tend to agree with you. Not surprised as well. 
Hype is evaporating. 
Smart money usually tend to stick with good regs, keeping them for years. This is why my eyes focused almost exclusively on next year performance.

Reasons aside, we can't ignore pure numbers of the latest drops. Premiums worrying.

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-10-2011 12:10 PM

June 9th Drop Stats
Well I like the 110 pick ups from yesterday. Lots of YP categories obtained, let's hope they get developed and not parked please (you all know who you are ).

We even got the two domains we've been waiting for, beating out our own DomainMonster back order, so saved 50 bucks!

So the CUPBOARDS.tel are now full of DELICIOUS.tel CEREALS.tel, PICKLES.tel and OLIVES.tel while there is are SACKS.tel full of OPIUM.tel and USEDBOOKS.tel near the FIREPLACE.tel at YOURHOME.tel! 

Although not sure why some of those got picked up.

Today we have more good YP-like and SEO pickings: Animations, Outfitters, Marketing Jobs, Talent Agencies and more.

As always, please find the drops categorized for your convenience through the DROP TOOL and order for 9.99 to help support freedom for our tools. If you've got a drop developed, drop us a line (pardon the pun) and we'll add it to the examples page.


Mark Kolb (Kprobe)06-11-2011 04:06 PM

June10th Drops
175 dropped domains were picked up yesterday. Not a bad haul.

Today's drops are available for review at the drop site.

Dropping tomorrow are over 3,000 to review, 90% that shouldn't have been bought in the first place.

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)07-26-2011 02:29 PM

Almost 2 months of drops
Just got back from vacation. Thought you'd want to see a summary of the 2,100+ dropped domains that have been recycled since June 1st. 

37,700+ domains were dropped. 7% found new owners. 

Summary defaults to generic words. Select [Phrases], [Hyphenated], [Others] to filter the rest.

Welcome back! hope u enjoyed your break...Thanks for the info

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)08-08-2011 03:12 PM

Big Generic Drop
Before vacation, I said I wouldn't post more drops, but today's list is quite extensive. You've got a good selection of 300+ names, adjectives and phrases to choose from.

10 bucks each when going through name.com at 2:30 PM EST today. Help keep our tools free by buying your domain via www.TelDomains.co


dottel.net08-08-2011 03:16 PM

That's ok - we will continue posting our picks in our thread - of course you can always search here ;)

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)08-08-2011 03:30 PM

I found no further need to post daily drops as that promotes a negative aspect for the tld. Drops should be keeping a low profile.


boracay.tel08-08-2011 03:49 PM

Agreed. Those who wish to buy know where to look surely.

dottel.net08-08-2011 03:55 PM

is it just me, or is this a strange viewpoint to be having in a thread about a drop tool :rolleyes:

anyway, each to their own, my last post on this topic here...

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)08-08-2011 04:03 PM

@dottel I started my own thread called Drop Tool for good reason in June and comment in my own thread, but as I said, I've stopped promoting drops except for special occasions. Title stays the same, opinion and purpose has changed. Keep your drop promotion yourself as you wish.

The TM drop tool was written long time ago and has not been updated because I wrote teldomains.co tool for recent drops. However neither tool does exactly what you need. Will look at updating the original tool to be more friendly.

Just picked up http://Hinges.telhttp://Pellets.tel & http://Ribbons.tel on the drop - if / when .tel hits mainstream these will be industry killers - in the meanwhile I will be happy to cover their annual reg cost using the monetisation I have planned for them.

Should still be some generics left from today's drop if you want to pick one up yourself.

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)03-19-2012 12:44 PM

Lots of Home-related drops today as keyword phrases. Great for SEO once set up properly.

mikeseaton03-19-2012 02:43 PM

Incredible how many generics were left on the table from the large number of March 16 drops - see http://www.teldomains.co/?go=drops

Just added http://Fossils.tel to the 3 others I purchased.
