Should I renew or drop my .tel domains? Empty Should I renew or drop my .tel domains?

The question isn't so easy to answer; everything depends on the future.
Since nobody can make a reliable forecast for this, at the end it depends on your personal judgement.

To built your own opinion, here a few hints (sorted by potential customers):

1.) Are you a small business without a website?

Take a look at the new template from Telnames: Is it worth to spend about US$ 25 yearly for the ability to be found on the internet?

Definitely: YES!

2.) Are you a small or big business with a website?

If you have already a professional website, why should you register a .tel in addition?
Does it offer you some additional value?

YES:

  • You can support your existing web presence with a better domain name, since you will find a lot of premium domains available for .tel while all good names for .com are taken already.
  • Presenting your customers an easy to handle and well arranged phone address book will satisfy them.
  • If name dialing for phone connections will become reality in the future, you have no other option than registering a .tel domain.

3.) Are you an individual?

If you are an advanced user you can use a lot of homepage tools to present yourself in a professional way (very often even for free).
But you have to know the resources and spend some time for it.
Instead the control panel of .tel is suited for everybody (including for people without much knowledge about the internet).

4.) Are you a domain investor?

If .tel domains will become a success, you should keep your .tel domains.
If .tel domains will be used by people in numbers less than a few millions, it's better not to waste any money with it.
But just take a look at the 3 previous categories. Can you imagine the demand for .tel domains from these groups will increase within the time? That should be the case!
And there is still the expectation people and (more important) providers of internet services will discover the advantage of DNS data storage (DNS = Domain Name System). If they do, this technology brings groundbreaking changes to the internet (which are only comparable to the invention of the internet itself).

As you can read from my summary above, it's definitely worth to hang in there.
There can be only one direction in the future: UPWARDS!

What do you thing? Do you have a different point of view?

I work on website designs and I'd like to sell the dottel domains like a directory to be available. I never offer dot tel domains to the business like yours, but I speak them about dot tel domains like a specialised directory. Do you thinks that I'm in the right way for my business?

Allvipdomains, building directories is another nice use for .tel domains without any doubts.

But on the other hand I guess there are not so many people in the world who like to spend their time with building directories.

For me .tel is a great product with a big potential which comes because it's a product for everyone.

But you are on the right track: Especially if you want to earn some money with your .tel domain, using it as a directory is the best way for monetization.

Next month, .tel is getting nine years old. The number of registered domains is declining continuously.
Who will still renew his domains?

As much as you might be interested in...

This year I will renew four of my remaining six .tel domains.

I still have 4 (four) TELs. As every year, now the time of TEL-renewals comes again.

Because I could't find any use for my TELs after Telnic had deleted subdomains, now I decided to drop two of them and then to chose one of two options:

a) to renew the rest two my TELs for one more year.

b) to drop these last two TELs and to forget about this "business" forever.

What do you think about that?

I had nine .tel domains.

Now I have four .tel domains left.

This year I will renew two of them for "sentimental" reasons and I will drop two.

I have no site developed under .tel after the closure of the Telnic model.

I turned my interest towards other extensions.

That is the best thing you can do. You have to choose the domain extension wisely.

.online, .shop and .site are performing very well.

I think that after all those bad things that Telniс has arranged to his customers, no one will ever believe in this extension because of its bad fame.

Even if one day will come another man as a boss of Telnic, who would be a person of competence and honesty, anyway, due to already firmly established bad fame of Telnic, this extension will never rise again.

I think the best move would be to close this toxic asset and to forget about it.

@maxi

True; many other new domain extensions aren't successful either, but at least they don't have such a bad history in customer relations.
