ICANN approves .tel top level domain

Posted on Tuesday, May 16 2006 @ 19:11 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
ICANN rejected the .xxx top level domain last week but today they've approved the creation of the new .tel domain.
The contract was awarded to UK-based Telnic, which expects the domain to be attractive to providers of emerging networking and telephony technologies such as Voice over IP.

Telnic chief executive Khashayar Mahdavi said that offering flexible control of domain name system technology for buyers of the .tel domain will allow individuals and businesses to control in real time how they can be reached.

Mahdavi explained that individuals can use the .tel domain to publish and update contact information directly within the domain name system.
