Telnic Limited, the UK-based operator of the .TEL top-level domain (TLD), announced today that it has selected NeuStar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a provider of essential clearinghouse and directory services to the global communications and Internet industry, to operate the domain name registry and DNS resolution systems for .TEL.
.TEL uses innovative technology to enable businesses and individuals to safely publish and manage their contact information in real time directly in the domain name system (DNS). Anyone will be able to use a .TEL domain name (i.e., JohnSmith.tel or CompanyName.tel) to initiate communication using telephony, Voice over IP (VoIP), Instant Messaging, email, SMS and other new forms of Internet communication. The .TEL domain will seamlessly integrate traditional means of communications with emerging technologies, making it an essential tool for businesses and individuals worldwide.
"We selected NeuStar because of its reputation for operational excellence, its global reach and its expertise in the convergence of Internet and telephony technologies," commented Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnic. "NeuStar has a deep understanding of -- and broad experience with -- domain name services, and the company has proven itself to be eminently capable of scaling to the very large transaction volumes expected in .TEL."
"NeuStar is excited to be working with Telnic to launch the new .TEL domain," said Mark Foster, CTO of NeuStar. "We believe that .TEL will help to enable new services like VoIP for individuals and businesses that need to publish and control, in real time, how they can be reached."
