.mobi's new cousin- Say "hello" to .tel

One ringey dingey after another.

QUOTE: ICANN just announced the addition of .tel to the DNS root zone, making it the 15th top level domain under contract with ICANN on the Internet. END QUOTE

Re: .mobi's new cousin- Say "hello" to .tel

The most valuable one will be
Ho.tel

There's two ways to look at it both would be beneficial to a guy at night...

Never thought about this market, kind of fun for those into word games. Probably loads of possibilities out there.

Probably works good with .ws. Maybe co.ws, arro.ws, bre.ws, minno.ws and marshmello.ws

Re: .mobi's new cousin- Say "hello" to .tel

More extentions are created, more valuable are DOT COM domains. That's a good thing.

Imagine which extention is easier to remember when we have a thousand extentions.

ICANN is making it easier to apply and run a registry, anyone with some cash and skills can apply for a new extention and run it from his/her own basement.

Amusing, perhaps memorable but I think the dot will kill any SEO value.

Returning to the post, I think they are already too many gTLD, this never are going to end?

And lots of them for me are very related i don't see the differences between .mobi and .tel to create other tld, and like that most of them are related.

Re: .mobi's new cousin- Say "hello" to .tel

Giant is right. Verisign are laughing.

The more confusing TLDs there are the more people will stick with the most memorable. Dot Com or ccTLD and perhaps dot net.

They won't let any previous gTLD grow, or any rediculous gTLD like .museum.

Why don’t we get together, and propose the new gTLD .WTF I am sure are going to get a lot more type-in that some others.

It's back under discussion, and still may happen.

The irony is that this was one of the "new" extensions that truly made sense for the internet and it got shot down.

Re: .mobi's new cousin- Say "hello" to .tel

Another cash cow is created for a lucky registry (and ICANN) as the TM owners all reach for their checquebooks to "seceure" their rights.

The porn guys DON'T WANT .xxx

Two letter names are not allowed anywhere.

.tel and .mobi are both different.

.tel will be for phone numbers where you can look up more information on the person supposedly. Sure you could do the same with .mobi but this is .tel's goal.
