The predicition is not difficult at all:
1. Follow the trend.
2. See the impact of the Telnames launch in spring 2012.
3. Compare the daily registrations with other TLDs.

The trend can only be broken if something extraordinary will happen, as example if Telnic will begin to develop .tel.
But how high are the chances for that?

That’s not realistic, because Telnic has reduced the effort from year to year.
The more registrations will decline, the more Telnic will reduce the development.

Where have you found that? I can't find it: http://www.telnames.com/bn2012/
If there really will be a price increase at Telnames, you can transfer your domains back to any other registrar.

The poll should also include these options:

Less than 50,000
Less than 75,000
Less than 100,000
Less than 150,000
-----------
More than 300,000


Now it is non-informative.

@maxi

I don't care if .tel will have 50,000 or 150,000 registrations overall.
If .tel won't have any growth, it'll sink anyway.
What's the difference whether .tel sinks slow or fast?

I think there is a difference. I would even prefer that if sinking, it would sink fast. Then the situation will force Telnic to make right decisions quicker.

I don't expect .tel to sink faster than what we see now.
Most people have left the party during the last 3 years.
The rest are people with more patient and will just wait for signs of improvement.
With continuing absence of improvements they will slowly surrender step by step.
And there is still one last hope:
After years of customer complaints, perhaps Telnic will show judiciousness one day and will take customer requirements into account.

Interesting graphic!

After the initial run in 2009 there have been only two upswings:
Launch of Telchina in January 2011: +90,000 domains
Launch of IDN in the second half of 2011: +10,000 domains

Instead the launch of Telnames has accelerated the downward trend.

Have just checked out the latest version of the home page http://www.telnames.com myself and confirm that it clearly states:

* Introductory price - expires 14 Jan 2013 (normal price £24.95). Includes set up, hosting & VAT.
Converting that to USD (using XE.com) we get (from the 14 January 2013) the following price comparison:

- Telnames .tel - 40.50 USD
- Telnic .tel - around 10.00 USD

So Telnames .tels will now cost about 4 times the price of Telnic .tels !

Now many small businesses may well say 40.50 USD is not bad value for a Telnames .tel for what they get (i.e. domain reg, control panel, hosting) for a year, but for anyone holding a reasonable number of domains and looking to transfer them to the only form of .tel being marketed (i.e. Telnames), then it is very bad news indeed !

I must admit I did not expect this to happen before Telnames had established itself as a worldwide brand - did anyone else see this coming ?

Perhaps you're right.


We need a collapse to make everybody understand Telnic is on the wrong track.


Why Telnic doesn't refine the design? The look of Telnames isn't perfect, but 100 % better than Telnic.

- Telnames .tel - 40.50 USD
- Telnic .tel - approx 10.00 USD

So Telnames .tels will now cost about 4 times the price of Telnic .tels !
So I can either continue with my plans to transfer say 500 Telnic .tels to Telnames, at an extra cost of 15,250 USD per year, or keep the .tels at Telnic registrars and have $15,250 more per year to spend on life's little luxuries (BMWs and Boating).

Guess what I've decided to do ?

http://MikeSeaton.tel

PS. Extra Cost = 500 x (Telnames new price $40.50 - Telnic price approx $10.00)

It's a tough call, because nobody knows where .tel will stand in a few years.
Telnic can always decide to correct the mistakes from the past.
Then .tel could turn into a very interesting offer.
