.tel Domain Creates New Demand

In a press release last week from Telnic Limited, the registry operator for the new .tel domain, the company announced that they will not auction off or hold back any domains for high profile companies or organizations. All the new domain names will be sold on a first-come first-serve basis. The company is expecting much demand for some of the more popular names, phrases, and generic names in the United States as well as in every country.

The domain will have unique characteristics that are not available with other domains. Domain owners will be able to store personal information along with their domain including contact information, keywords, and location records. The company also feels that a unique indexing quality of the domain will make it very search engine friendly and lead to good indexing within the major search engines.
