Network Solutions® announces that the sunrise period for the new .tel top level domain extension begins at 10am Eastern Time on December 3, 2008. The new .tel domain names will be available for organizations and businesses holding Global and National trademarks for a price of $399 for a three year term.

.Tel is a brand new domain name extension that allows businesses and individuals to post and manage important contact information directly on the internet. Every .tel domain name includes a hosted Web site for positing phone numbers, email addresses, Web links, keywords and more. The convenient page layout allows domain owners to control how their information is displayed and who sees it. In addition, each .tel listing is included in the Telpage global directory, where customers can search by name or keywords to locate the business.

"One of the many reasons for registering a .tel includes having your business listed in the global online directory that the .tel registry is developing," said Steve Miholovich, senior director of Product Management at Network Solutions. "This directory is a great way to get your business found online and it also gives businesses the ability to add links to their web site, blog or social networking profile."

The .tel domain name allows business owners or individuals to publish, store, update and manage all contact information instantly and in one place, creating a permanent online business card which is easily accessible in an organized and legible format on mobile devices. In short, .tel allows businesses and organizations to expand their ability to communicate and reach customers by becoming accessible from any device connected to the Internet in just one click.
