Thread: What do you think about .tel domain?

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    What do you think about .tel domain?

    I just wanna know what other web masters think about registering of .tel domain name. I came across eurodns.com and found out that it offers such domain extension at affordable price.
    So, would it be profitable to register .tel domain?

    Every extension is created for some purpose. *.tv is created for tv channel and *.com is for commercial, so a profitable/no of buying *.tel is depend on your site topic. From it's name, tel is telecommunication, so it will be good if you use it for telecommunication site. For other site topic is also OK but i think it's just not too familiar yet for mostly people.

    It still surprises me how many people still think .tv was created for websites related to television and video.

    Yes, it's mostly used for that, but it's actually the ccTLD for Tuvalu.

  4. The program with the other extensions is that people are not use to going to something that is different than .com. I know a lot of my friends were really surprised when I was talking about a website at .biz. It seemed as if they had never heard of it before. So, I don't think it is a good idea to get a different extension other than .com.

    .net's and .org's aren't too bad of an investment, but .com's are the best still

  6. .Tel's can only be used by companies for contact information. You CANNOT put a blog or anything like that on it. Useless for people like us.

  7. Oh, I did not know that. So based on the extension, do you have to have a certain kind of site?

  8. I think .tel is the only one that has such a limitation.

    .gov, .edu and many of the countries-related domains have limitations too.

    No, you can make blogs and everything on them. It is just that they are not sold to everyone.
