Yes, that certainly seems to be the case !

I have just been speaking to GoDaddy support in Ireland and although he couldn't give me a definite start date it does look like it is going to happen - this would be a big boost for .TEL as GoDaddy is the world's largest Registrar.

Very happy to know. Hopefully, this will make .tel stronger and acceptable by the overall domain community.

No reason to choose GoDaddy: name.com is very good and cheaper!

Yes, that's true.
GoDaddy is not for domainers.

but for normal people who don't know what the domain name is, godaddy has best service for them.
I love their service.
yes, price absorbs,but it is because of the novice correspondence.

And I like their hosting.
It's very easy for beginers.
I love their PageBuilder and  templates.

I was speaking to GoDaddy in Phoenix, Arizona today and they advised me that .TEL will be available on GoDaddy.com from Monday 7 August 2017 for both Domain Registrations and (what interests me more) Aftermarket Sales.

IMO this would not have happened without the liberalisation of .TEL which was the smartest move Telnic ever made !

See http://www.tel.community/t4579-sedo-mls-is-now-available-to-sell-tel-domains#17593 for info on selling on Afternic.com - the domain marketplace that GoDaddy bought.

I was playing with Godaddy, looking at the prices they sell .tels in Italy.

But something does not work with Godaddy.

For every string I typed, the answer was always Sorry, ***. tel is taken.

I've tried with random strings like:
sdgyyyyj.tel
gsdgrhdshdg.tel
3fggkdvoo0.tel
segsdgsgesgs.tel
and silvano-garello.tel (and surely this domain is'nt registered)

I've tried both with the Italian version and with the US version of the site.

@silvano - I tried the same on GoDaddy UK on Tuesday 8 August (one day after the expected GoDaddy Launch Date) and got exactly the same - every random collection of characters reported as "taken", making it impossible to use GoDaddy UK as a .TEL Registrar..

I'm hoping this is just a temporary blip/delay on GoDaddy's part !

I have just finished a long phone call with GoDaddy support in Arizona, mostly spent hanging on the line whilst the tech support guy referred to others within GoDaddy (including Sales & Marketing), about the fact that https://www.godaddy.com/tlds/tel-domain says you can now register .TEL domains at GoDaddy, but you can't !

Try currently to register any .TEL domain at GoDaddy and it will simply reply "Sorry, xxxxxxxxxxxx.tel is taken" !

This matter is now being escalated within GoDaddy for resolution and I have been told I should receive an email response within 72 hours.

I'm hoping before that this issue will be resolved - it will be worth checking https://www.godaddy.com/tlds/tel-domain every so often to see if xxxxxxxxxxxx.tel is still taken !

After 15 days still: "Sorry, ***.tel is taken".

A famous Italian politician once said, "To be evil is a sin, but we guess"

I doubt Godaddy would sell .tel domains. It seems more interested in selling the other discounted extensions that we find in the search page.

@silvano - STILL GoDaddy is NOT allowing users to register .TEL domains - despite what they say at https://uk.godaddy.com/tlds/tel-domain following their new Registrar agreement with Telnic/Telnames !

Here's one I just tried to register and the response I got from GoDaddy

TELNIC/TELNAMES & GODADDY NEED TO GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER AND SORT THIS OUT NOW !

This story with Telnames and Godaddy is more of the old sad and boring story of Telnic-Telnames.
It is sad that Telnames drag Godaddy to their own grounds of mediocrity and discredit to their customers. How unfortunate!
Even if this bad tale changes drastically, we will still remember the wrong procedures from Telnames ...
How much mystery can the .tel domains hide so Godaddy fails in this way?

Another 21 Days has gone by since my post above on 29 August and it's STILL not possible to register a .TEL at GoDaddy, despite what https://uk.godaddy.com/tlds/tel-domain says !

Does nobody at Telnic/Talnames care about this GoDaddy .TEL registration failure ?
