Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 3, 2008
Name, one of the fastest growing domain registrars is now accepting applications for the newest domain extension released .TEL.
Unlike many other domain extensions, the new extension works as an online calling card for individuals and business alike. The registration of a .TEL domain allows its owner to have an instant website dedicated to providing ways for visitors to contact them, both on and offline. The site generated for a .TEL domain uses the information the owner provides to create a web page dedicated solely to their contact information.
Web-enabled mobile devices like mobile phones or PDA's can also access a .TEL domain, making a businesses' contact information accessible while on the go.
Name.com will begin offering .TEL registrations on December 3, 2008 during the Sunrise Period, which runs until February 2, 2009. During the Sunrise Period, trademark holders can register .TEL domains that protect their Intellectual Property before registrations are opened to the public. Name.com is currently accepting applications for the .TEL Sunrise Period, which will be submitted on December 3 when the period opens. Cost for registering a .TEL domain during the Sunrise Period is $389 for a three year registration on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Name.com will also be participating in the Landrush Period, which starts on February 3, 2009. During the Landrush, domains that were not registered during Sunrise will be eligible for Landrush registration at a premium price. General availability of .TEL registrations will occur on March 24, 2009.
