Unbelievable how Telnic is treating its best customers, so that they drop almost all domains.

Wanted to think about this statement. Operating seamlessly is an interesting phrase.

.tel doesn't operate seamlessly because on any internet device bigger than a smartphone it does not use up the available space on the device's screen. For example, on a desktop or a laptop or a netbook the .tel information is centered in the middle of the page. Let's refer to it as an information column.

This looks ridiculous for obvious reasons and this is not negated by the use of background images around the .tel information column. 

Now with a .com site or any other domain extension in existence the seamless operation between internet devices can be achieved with existing scripts or indeed is already provided with some kinds of hosting and site creation software.

So there is actually no evidence or a plan for seamless operation between different internet devices for .tels.

What is the potential of seamless operation? There is no potential because all other domain extensions can achieve it easily. And if .tel did achieve seamless operation it would only bring it up to the level of other domain extensions. The potential is not unique or special in any way.

All .tel is is a contact us page(s) which compared to every other domain extension in existence, is functionally near-useless because it can't be developed except in a very restricted way governed by the control panel and some very limited 3rd party applications.

Why did I drop domains like aluminum.tel et. al.?

Because I can go to http://name.com and buy quite a few domains with the single word aluminum. All of these domains can be used to build normal content websites which provide real value to people and not just a contact us page. For example do any of these catch your fancy? They are all available:

aluminum.construction
aluminum.repair
aluminum.design
aluminum.consulting
aluminum.solar
aluminum.reviews

Why would you own aluminum.tel except as a risky punt on some future change in the content displaying abilities of .tels? It simply does not make commercial sense.

Don't worry; no one has or ever had inside information.
Since Telnic has no plans for development, no inside information exist.

I agree.
.tel would have potential, but not in its current form.

Congratulations for buying http://tshirts.tel for 500 GBP goes to Phoenix publicidad S.R.L. from Barcelona in Spain.

The buyer is a T-shirt distributor and owns many domains related to T-shirts.



PS: The bought domain isn't developed yet.

There appears to be definite value in 1-word generic commercially orientated .tel domain names.

Knowing how Mark Kolb of Telmasters has been picking these up in recent months he must be sitting on a potentially large payday !

This domain sale is currently an isolated case. No other .tel domain is known for being sold during the last years.

Yes, these sale psychological highs can last for weeks. I sold a .tel a couple of years ago for US$ 450 and the buzz lasted a while.

"There appears to be definite value in 1-word generic commercially orientated .tel domain names."


A delusional statement. One domain sold to someone who doesn't understand the extension and he has inductively reasoned that this single sample can apply to the whole.


I couldn't find any buyer for some of the best 1-word generics that there are. There is simply no market and Mark is registering drops as far as I can tell. Currently there is no commercial case whatsoever for owning a .tel.

Dear All, 
I am new here. 
For me, .tel is the best tld. No need website development, no hosting..etc. Registered 50+ .tel this month. I developed my home city tel with only 1000+ listing and now i get reg.fee x 10 times revenue per year. If I add 100k listing to the directory, it is possible to make reg free x 100 times per year!.

Nice to read another, more optimistic comment here.

How is that possible?
From where do you get so much revenue so quickly?
May I ask which .tel domain you are using?

Dear Toptel, 

Thanks.

I get revenue from my home city dot tel name. the city name mentioned with my name on my last post. I get revenue from google adsense. Also please note, My .tel get traffic mainly from India only, ie only low ppc income. If the traffic from USA...the income will be more.

note: i registered my city dot tel in 2009 and added listing when I get time. ie, 10-20 entries per week...etc. It will take some months to reach on google search 1st page. If I search "Kochi Directory...", I can find my .tel on home page.

That's nice.
We aren't talking about big money, but at least the domain is working well for you.

Too bad it's not possible to add pictures into .tel domains without the use of uncomfortable third-party providers.

Exactly; there is no faster and cheaper solution for creating an online presence.
Unfortunately the possibilities of .tel hasn't been discovered.

Another delusional Moonlight statement as per he/she/its MO.

Blogspot is free as is Wordpress.com; both cheaper than .tel and no hosting fees for limited packages. Both are fast to set up and both have the advantage that real content can be displayed unlike what is available with a .tel. And there are many other platforms with these types of advantages as well.  Facebook is a free option.

Without real content search engines will not find you unless your pages are designed around low to zero competition keywords or keyphrases. 

From any angle a .tel is functionally near-useless. This will only change if the control panel is opened up for proper development capabilities. But Telnic have no money left.

i must say i to don't understand why people think tel is cheap .
why do they think this? 

 Telblogger you said it all  very good post! should be a sticky at the top of this forum.

seo keeps changing and tel is stuck in the past dead.
i can't run a business with tel now and on top of that tel is known as a failure 
can't be associated with it.
