TelMasters Open Authorization (OAuth)


We're quite excited about having Telmasters Tools validated and approved by Telnic as a genuine OpenAuth client. We'll be converting all our tools (except Traffic Stats) this week and over the weekend. To prepare for this and to have uninterrupted service, please authorize yourself in advance by visiting Once you've done this, you will no longer need to provide your CTH username and password to use our tools.

From inception:

Telnic, the .tel registry, incorporated a username and password system to securely access your (CTH) control panel. Using the link supplied by your registrar, you enter your username and password in order to populate and manage your .tel domain. Now if you only have one or two domains to manage, the process of inputting usernames and passwords is not that onerous. In addition, if your registrar was on the ball and enabled you to have many domains in one account, you are able to substantially reduce the amount of time required to access your control panel. However, if you have dozens, hundreds or thousands of domains and are at a registrar that does not have the one-account system, it takes an enormous amount of time to list, maintain and retrieve the username and password for each domain.

Secure Access:

Open Authorization, (OAuth) is an open standard that allows users to share their private resources (e.g. photos, videos, contact lists) stored on one site with another site or application without having to issue their username and password.
OAuth allows users to distribute tokens instead of usernames and passwords to their data hosted by a given service provider. Each token grants access to a specific application for specific resources and for a defined duration (e.g. the next 2 hours).
Thus OAuth allows a user to grant a third party site access to their information stored with another service provider, without sharing their access permissions or the full extent of their data.

Tapping into the Tools With Peace of Mind:

OpenAuth lets us provide you with secure domain management services without revealing your CTH username and password when using our tools and applications. Your OAuth request will be approved upon your successful login at your registrar's Client Authentication page, which provides us with an authenticated 'token' that will be used by our tools. This token is valid for seven days, but gets renewed automatically. However, if you wish to revoke access at any time, do so via your CTH control panel > Settings > Approved Clients > Revoke.

After authentication, all domains in the account associated with any domain you supply will be accessible via OAuth. Should you have domains at different registrars, or domains in different accounts at the same registrar, you will need to approve access for each registrar/account as OAuth is enabled at the account level.

We'll keep you posted as soon as further developments become available.
