.TEL Updates on March 13th, 2017
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.
A newly upgraded Telhosting platform is a ready-made option among others for customers to showcase their .TEL domain names.
A New Telhosting Platform
.TEL registrants may access the new, optional Telhosting system at https://www.managemy.tel. More information will also be available on the registry's website (www.do.tel). New content on this and other platforms will now resolve in the DNS.
iOS and Android apps will be available that will enable .TEL domain name customers using Telhosting to manage their domain names using their smartphone. Downloads for these apps will be available from Telnic's website or from the Apple and Google Play stores around March 2017.
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. Registrants who backed up their data may use it as a reference for populating their new account or as a data source for populating an independent and separate third party hosting solution.
It is also important to note that Telnic will not run the old and new platform simultaneously and will not be offering sub domain functionality in the new platform. Should .TEL registrants wish to continue to host their domain on a similar version to the current Telhosting platform which incorporates sub domains, please ask them to contact the .TEL registry at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options available.
Domains can be registered with the API AddDomain command.
