Share Article

EuroDNS SA and Telnic Ltd announced today that EuroDNS was the first ICANN-accredited Registrar to sign up to distribute the new communications-focused .tel top level domain (TLD).

The fact that the team was the first to sign with us demonstrates the understanding EuroDNS has of .tel's potential impact on the future of internet-based communications and directory services.

EuroDNS SA and Telnic Ltd announced today that EuroDNS was the first ICANN-accredited Registrar to sign up to distribute the new communications-focused .tel top level domain (TLD).

The .tel enables the user to store, update and publish contact information, web links and keywords directly on the Internet under a unique domain name. Simple, fast and accessible from any device, .tel provides a new internet standard for businesses and individuals to take full control over how and where people reach them. The .tel enables global discoverability in the first 'live', next-generation contacts directory, with keywords enhancing search engine optimization.

"As a global Registrar we always aim to be in the frontline for new extensions so our customers can benefit from them right away," stresses Xavier Buck, CEO of EuroDNS "Accordingly, the decision to add .tel immediately was an easy one: as a global directory integrating any and all means of communication, it should appeal to all our customers, from individuals to portfolios owners."

Additionally, the ease of use and rich functionality of the .tel publishing platform opens up new markets and opportunities for developers and resellers. Through the expertise acquired by its EnumDNS subsidiary, EuroDNS has the adequate technological means and experience to help its customers develop new services and solutions using the .tel.

"EuroDNS has been a strong supporter of our work to develop .tel over the years," adds Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnic Ltd, "The fact that the team was the first to sign with us demonstrates the understanding EuroDNS has of .tel's potential impact on the future of internet-based communications and directory services."

A Luxembourg based company, EuroDNS is a global Registrar specialised in International Domain Name extensions, and a leader on the European market. Thanks to its strong "one-stop-shop" strategy and with more than 100+ extensions available, EuroDNS offers its customers the possibility to consolidate their portfolios, not only worldwide but also in key segments of the market. Excellent relations with Domain Name Registries have allowed the company to achieve great success with the recent launches of other extensions such as .Asia and .Me.

Working with Telnic, EuroDNS will endeavour to inform developers, brand owners and customers at large of the benefits of .tel. Sunrise applications will be open to national trademark owners on a first-come, first-served basis from Wednesday, 3rd December 2008. Landrush applications open to all will commence on Tuesday, 3rd February 2009.

"A Sunrise period is a good way for trademark holders to protect their brands, allowing them to protect their intellectual property should they so wish," adds Jean-Christophe Vignes, EuroDNS' Executive Vice-President and General Counsel, "However, thanks to .tel's innovative technology and purpose, it also becomes a tremendous opportunity to enjoy a new and immediate internet presence that is completely different to other top level domains, which is why we are glad to be on board so early."

EuroDNS will start accept pre-registrations for the .tel Sunrise Period in the very near future (http://www.EuroDNS.com).
