Telnic, the registry operator for the new communications-focused .tel top level domain (TLD), says that more than 200 000 domain registrations have been received within two months of general availability.

"This is a truly remarkable milestone considering current economic conditions and with the attention of the world on global events, but proves that a simple but compelling service under the control of the individual has significant potential," says Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnic.
"As early adopters start using the .tel as their single point of contact, more and more individuals and businesses are seeing that it's an incredibly useful way to manage the complexity of communications choices in one single place online."
