.TEL is the domain extension designed to give users a place to publish contact information and is unlike other extensions as it will not host websites. It is operated by Telnic.Org and can be registered by anyone for a minimum one year period.
.TEL transforms the way businesses and individuals communicate and stay in touch.
No matter how you choose to stay in contact with the world (via mail, email, phone, cell, fax, skype, instant messenger, social networking sites, and more), you can post all your contact information to one easily accessible place. No matter how often you move, change jobs, change your phone number, or update your favorite Web links, your friends and family will have immediate access to your latest information.
A .TEL domain is a perfect solution for businesses of all sizes. No matter if you’re a global company with local offices or a local company looking to grow globally, a .TEL domain puts contact information at your customers’ fingertips.
In addition to including your company’s basic contact information on your .TEL site, you can create a hierarchical data structure, enabling customers to visit your .TEL address and drill down to find the contact information most pertinent to their needs.
Customers can access your company information from any Internet-enabled device. If they’re on the run and all they have is their cell phone, no problem! They can type YourCompany.tel into their phone browser and instantly your information is displayed.

This is the mother of all phone books. Your .TEL will function as an all-encompassing contact point for your life. Here are just a few ideas of what this can include:
.TEL is open to anyone, similar to .COM, .ORG, or .NET.
