Telnic, the registry operator for the new communications-focused .tel top level domain (TLD), has roped in MySpace social portal to sell .tel domains to its members. In partnerships with other ICANN accredited registrars, MySpace will be offering .tel domains to its community for US$19.99 per year starting today (March 25). What does it mean to MySpace users?
Telnic explains: MySpace’s 130 million active users, with over 20 million unique monthly users accessing the community via mobile devices, will now be able to take advantage of the .tel to better promote their MySpace page in organic search results from any device.
At the same time, users can use the .tel domain to securely share their more private contact information with non-MySpace users who wish to contact them.
“MySpace is exactly the type of partner that has the foresight to see the .tel as a complementary product, providing choices as social networkers adopt new modes of communication while they continue to enjoy the benefits of MySpace,” said Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnic.
Founded in 2000, Telnic is a UK-based registry operator and sponsoring organization for the new .tel sponsored top level domain (sTLD).
ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is based in California, United States and is a non-profit organization. Among other tasks, it handles the assignment of domain names and IP addresses used on the Internet.
