Anyone will be able to register a .tel domain name, at a premium price, from 3 February 2009 (15:00 GMT) until 23 March 2009. The initial registration period is 3 years and each domain name will be allocated on a first come, first served basis with no validation.
After the Landrush period .tel domain names will be available at a fraction of the cost but obviously the most valuable domains names would be registered by then.
As no web hosting or web development is required, .tel domains are a revolution in the use of domain names and internet publishing.
Lexsynergy has started accepting pre-registrations. To submit your application log in to your Lexsynergy control panel or email email@example.com.
