TEL is very confusing

Post by NewYorkCity on Fri 12 Oct 2012, 2:17 pm

Telnames don't have an option to build directories or fill domains with content. And possibilities for monetization are missing entirely (for owners and users).


While domains from Telnames look damn good, instead Telnic don't have an option to make domains look interesting.


Both services don't give options for full website content and advanced usability.


On the other hand contact information are always in sight, mobile websites are generated without additional work and a homogeneous structure allows interaction between domains. That could be trend-setting!


I get the impression we are dealing with an extraordinary product, but the software maker has some shortfall in technical processing and development.


Can anybody consult Telnic to bring them on the right path?

The most confusing issue is that the same guys founded two different companies (Telnic and Telnames) for the same product, and every company provides exactly those features the other company is missing.
This way we have two different specifications and two incomplete products.
I haven't found any person here or elsewhere who can follow this logic!

As discussed here on the forum the intention from Telnic is clear:
Telnic don't want to continue developing the control panel for other registrars anymore.
With Telnames they show the registrars how it is possible to develop .tel domains - and now Telnic is sitting back and waiting for registrars developing their own control panel.
It is a dangerous game, because if Telnames don't lead to high registration numbers, registrars will never see a reason to start with it.
If this will be the case, probably Telnic will improve the normal control panel in a few years itself.
So, hopefully you have a long breath!

Anyway, .tels aren't full websites, nor likely will become.

The domain's purpose is to provide a single name space for Internet
communications services. Subdomain registrations serve as a single point
of contact for individuals and businesses, providing a global contact
directory service by hosting all types of contact information directly
in the Domain Name System, without the need to build, host or manage a
traditional web service.
(Wikipedia)

No frills.

Good point!
The question is if the value of having fast accessible contact data from .tel can outdo the website content from other domains.
And if yes, how to bring this advantage to a broad mass!

YES - these two guys are domain marketing heavyweights with a proven track record.

Their company RightOfTheDot.com is...
...a consulting group offering domain industry expertise to help you launch your new TLD and reignite existing Top Level Domains.
I have suggested to Telnic on more than one occasion that they use their proven expertise to reignite .tel - the suggestion was totally ignored as usual !

The problem seems to be the guys from Telnic know pretty much what it is necessary to do, but that would require more expenses for software and for marketing.
This doesn’t conform to Telnic’s strategy to keep the financial investment low from their side.
Telnic seems to be convinced they have a very special product that will succeed in a few years for sure. That’s why they think they don’t need to strain themselves.

Em hello? they market to small business, thus you're making money by running your business calls etc through it. It's not supposed to be a website with adverts, when it's offered as a contact card and besides ads absorb.

I use ad-block and when I turn that thing off I can't believe how messy the web is with thousands of adverts trying to get in my face.

Plus if you like adverts you can sell telnames domains by applying to do it via that link thing on your own site or blog.

They probably even have right to think so, because I don't see a better solution for mobile websites and access of contact data.
