.TEL IDN Preregistrations

TEL IDN Preregistration

Hello all. TEL IDN domain names will be available starting on June 15, 2010 14:00 UTC. We (Name.com) are now taking pre-orders and will attempt to acquire the domain on your behalf at launch time. As always, please contact me directly if there are any questions or issues. Current price for a TEL IDN preregistration is $29.99 and all domains are first come first served.

Thanks!
Owen

Definitely makes no sense for IDN. You can't even make money off of them. You can have a contact page...

Re: .TEL IDN Preregistrations

I don't think you actually have control over your own DNS with .tel so it's all a waste of time.

I'd rather have poop sent to me in the mail than register IDN.tel.

I think you can now add Adsense so if they get any traffic or could be optimized money could be made?

You can put a phone number on the page and wait for the line to start ringing off the hook.
