Can I make a .com domain name redirect to a .tel address?

Post by Joshuagraham on Sun 29 Mar 2015, 4:59 am

Hi, I have a .tel domain name and I want to redirect an existing .com domain name to the .tel address. Is this possible? 

Thanks!

Of course you can redirect a .com to a .tel. But why would you want to?

It would be like going from a filet mignon to a rotting 3 weeks-in-the-sun McDonalds cheese burger.

Joshua,

Most domain providers offer you the option to redirect a domain to another (e.g. to .tel) for free.
Please go to the control panel of your domain provider.
Enter a web forwarding for the .com domain in your settings.
Here an example from Domainmonster:



The settings at other providers should work similar.

Redirecting a .com domain to a .tel domain makes absolutely sense if you want to quickly and easily set up a contact website for low costs.

It would look beautiful if you use the template from Telnames.

Maybe you want to forward only the mobile version of your website: http://www.teltalk.org/t387-forwarding-mobile-users-to-your-tel-name

Yes, that could be important:
It's important for everyone to buy a .tel domain before 21st April 2015

Former Telnic employees redirect their .com domains to their .tel domains sometimes.

One example: http://theluckparticle.com

Some people own a .tel domain. I guess they do it for a reason!

.tel domains would be great if they could be found somewhere. Unfortunately that's not the case.
