Directel Macau has published Macau's official Yellow Pages for the past 21 years. It operates under a contract from Companhia de Telecomunicações de Macau, the local telecommunications company.
.tel is a top level domain (TLD) operated by Telnic Ltd, a UK-based registry operator and is sponsoring organization for the new .tel sponsored top level domain. Since launching the .tel TLD in March 2009, Telnic Ltd has registered more than 275,000 .tel domains.
Directel Macau's solution will include a Macau Yellow Pages-branded .tel proxy page in both simplified Chinese and English. The .tel proxy page will be automatically optimized for mobile and traditional Web access.
Global contact directory
The .tel domain aims to provide a single name space for Internet communications services. Subdomain registrations serve as a single point of contact for individuals and businesses, providing a global contact directory service by hosting all types of contact information directly in the domain name system, without the need to build, host or manage a traditional Web service.
Oscar Sousa Marques, CEO of Directel Macau, said, "We strongly believe that .tel will enhance our multi-platform strategy and help us provide our clients with increasingly effective ways to target their audiences in Macau and abroad."
"By delivering this additional service to our customers, we will be able to offer a simple and effective online presence which will serve their needs in an effective and optimized way, regardless of how their customers wish to access and communicate with them," he added.
