The new gTLD .tel will launch on 3 December 2008.
From the launch date until 2 February 2009 trade mark owners will be given priority to register their trade marks as a .tel domain name (Sunrise Period).
The Sunrise Period will operate on a first come, first served basis. This means that the sooner an application is submitted the greater the chance of securing the domain name.
The applicants trade mark must have been applied for before 30 May 2008 and registered prior to 3 December 2008.
Lexsynergy is now accepting .tel applications.
