.tel on sale

Today is the day that .tel domains were made available for trade mark owners, for more details see the earlier post here. Interestingly enough (and despite IP Freely's views on the matter) the Guardian reports that the company behind .tel insist: ".tel should not be seen as yet another attempt to extract cash from brand owners and companies desperate to keep control of their online presence."

Apparently .tel allows domain owners more freedom in how they use the internet: "Instead of having to go out onto the web to get further information, you go to the DNS and every single way I can interact with you or a business is delivered straight back," for more details check out the Guardian article here.
