LONDON, September 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Telnic Limited (http://telnic.org), the Registry Operator for the communications-focused .tel top level domain (TLD), today announced that all-numeric .tel domain strings of eight digits or longer will be made available in October.
Registrants wishing to register strings such as 00442074676450.tel or 0207-467-6450.tel will be able to do so through ICANN-accredited Registrars from 15:00 GMT on Tuesday 15th October.
"Registrants now have an increased choice of registering a .tel name or a .tel number under which they can publish all types of contact information online," said Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnic. "This means that if the customer knows either the business name or telephone number for a business, it can be reached online quickly in a mobile-friendly way."
Registrations will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Retail pricing is set by ICANN-accredited Registrars and their resellers, but it is anticipated to be broadly in line with existing .tel pricing.
A list of current ICANN-accredited Registrars that offer .tel domain registrations can be found at http://telnic.org/get-started-buy.html.
