NeuStar Will Operate .tel Top-Level Domain

Users can use a .tel domain name to initiate communication over telephony, VoIP, instant messaging, e-mail, SMS, and other Web communications, the company says.

NeuStar has been chosen to operate the .tel top-level domain by Telnic, which controls the telephony-oriented domain.

Virginia-based NeuStar said users can use a .tel domain name to initiate communication over telephony, VoIP, instant messaging, e-mail, SMS, and other Web communications.

Previously, Telnic, which is based in London, said the .tel domain name would be offered through various registrars and resellers. Telnic applied for .tel in October of 2000, and was awarded control over the suffix last year by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.

"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," said Mark Foster, NeuStar CTO, in a statement.
