@Telnic,

Can you set up tp.tel to forward to TelPages.com please (easier to remember and enter)?

Roy..

Appears that .TP is a legacy Country Code. If I remember correctly, any two letter combinations that could be confused with Country Codes (ccTLDs) are reserved to reduce confusion and conflict. Here is a link to an article for .TP.

Thanks

Hi Dan,

I understand the legacy issue with the domain extension .tp but I'm interested in tp.tel which is reserved by Telnic. tp has been registered against other domain extensions e.g http://tp.co.uk 

I just need something a bit easier for people to key in, and remember, and Telnic hold the best options, are doing nothing with them, and it would only take a minute to do.[/size]

Roy...

Maybe this will help with "Why Not"..

"...two-character domains matching existing ccTLDs will be restricted."

Goto: http://www.telnic.org/faq.html

Sections
-Short and numeric .tel names
-What can't I apply for?

http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db (.tp is a recognized ccTLD)

Thanks

Is that Telnic policy or something imposed upon them?

To give a further example - .ca is shown as the country code for Canada but http://ca.com seems to be a business registered in New York.[/size]

So does this mean that anyone already holding a registered .tel domain with a name which now appears on the "current Top-Level Domains in the IANA database" last will have to forfeit it? :confused:[/size]
Aled02-17-2014 01:05 PM








No, if a name has been registered before becoming reserved then it would not be forfeited.
Blunderer02-17-2014 03:20 PM








Hmm.... 'so the people that registered photography.tel, guru.tel, tattoo.tel, etc. can use them, and others who registered tp.co.uk, tp.com, etc. can use them but you can't use tp.tel?

It's a funny old world!
