Notice to all .TEL owners
Posted by Garrett Saundry on 01/23/17 10:46 AM

Dear .TEL Owner,

As a current owner of one or more .TEL domain names through, you may be aware of upcoming changes to .TEL and how this domain name functions. TELNIC, the organization that runs the .TEL registry has recently sent a notice to all TEL Registrants on December 12th and again on January 9th.

A link to this notice is located here.

Webnames encourages you to review this information as there are a number of changes taking place in March which will impact how you use your current .TEL domain name.

These changes include:


·         A new Telhosting platform (i.e there will be a new platform to host your .TEL content on).

·         .TEL domain names will be able to be used like any other ‘regular’ domain name, meaning all restrictions about only using .TEL with Telhosting will be removed.


·         The new Telhosting platform will not support subdomains. This will impact everyone who is using this feature in their current Telhosting setup. Should Registrants wish to continue to operate on a similar version to the current Telhosting platform which incorporates sub domains, please contact and to discuss options available.


·         Existing Telhosting data is not being moved to the new system. In order to populate and use the new Telhosting system, you will need to re-create your Telhosting content.

·         Existing Telhosting data will no longer be accessible in any way after March 12th, 2017. Registrants are required to download a backup copy of their data before this data in order to retain it.

·         All support for Telhosting will now be performed by TELNIC directly.

Complete messaging and further details regarding these changes is contained within the aforementioned communications from TELNIC. There is a thorough FAQ included therein which will likely further address questions you may have.

The transition date for all of these changes begins February 13th, and concludes on March 13th, 2017

As .TEL will soon allow for the use of any hosting platform (i.e it can be used just like a ‘regular’ domain) Registrants of .TEL domain names may wish to seek alternative hosting options to either mimic their current TEL content, or create something entirely different. If you are interested in discussing these options, please get in touch with us via

Sincerely, Inc.

How to Create a Custom URL with Domain Forwarding

How to Create a Custom URL

Let’s face it, most small businesses only have one domain name. While we advocate registering different variation of your domain name so that no one can steal your brand’s identity online, it can feel like a waste knowing that the new domain name you registered isn’t doing anything to promote your business or drive more traffic to your website.
