Creating your .TEL web page
The .TEL domain is different from all other domain names. Because .TEL is meant to be a sort of online directory, you will not be able to develop a normal web page. All .TEL pages must be hosted through TelNic and located on their name servers. If you have an account with another web host, you will not be able to add your .TEL domain to that account.

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:
