As of March 13, 2017, DNS Restrictions lifted by the registry and .TEL registrants will be granted the freedom of choice with respect to the hosting and use of their .tel domain. A newly upgraded Telhosting platform (available Feb 13th, 2017) will become one option among many for customers to showcase their .TEL domain names.

==== Summary ====
  
.TEL registrants will be issued an email with account details for the new Telhosting system. Updates may be made on the new system, but any content created will not resolve in the DNS until March 13th, 2017. Prior to 13th March 2017, domains will continue to resolve as normal in the current system.  
+
As of March 13, 2017, previous DNS restrictions have been lifted by the registry, allowing .TEL registrants the freedom to choose how to use and host their .TEL domain names.  
  
Please note that any data in the current system will be PERMANENTLY DELETED after March 13th, 2017. Any .tel domain owner that wishes to extract a copy of their data from the current system should run the BACKUP function from their current Telhosting account by March 12th, 2017 at the latest. This will produce an XML file containing all of their data which can be used either as a reference for populating their new account or as a data source for populating an independent and separate 3rd party hosting solution. Data that is not backed up will not be recoverable.

A newly upgraded Telhosting platform is a ready-made option among others for customers to showcase their .TEL domain names.  
  
It is also important to note that Telnic is unable to dual run the current and new platform and will not be offering sub domain functionality in the new platform. Once again, .TEL domain registrants are advised to back up their domain data from the current platform by 12th March 2017.

'''EXAMPLE:''' - Please remember the password when creating a new account. If you do not explicitly set a password, the .TEL system will  automatically generate a random password for you. The password will be displayed after sending the command and will be sent out to the email  address of the registrant.

In case of creating a CTH user with this command, the password '''will not be visible in the status of the domain afterwards'''. Please note that the maximum length of a username is 32 characters.

[edit] Key Dates and Actions to be Taken

As of March 13th, 2017, the old Telhosting system was permanently shut down and any data was PERMANENTLY DELETED.
