What you need to know about dot.Tel domains.

Dot.Tel is a significant change in the way people and companies will be found on the internet. It will be equivalent to having a virtual business card. Like most people, I didn't get it at first. Why have another website to store your info?

First, it's not a website - it's just a place on the web where people can find you simply by typing your name or company. Second, it's always up-to-date - because it's not a website and there's only one copy of your info. Still confused?

When you want to find a phone number for someone at a company using the internet, you need to google the company, then try to find the person. Or try to find a department using the White Pages - with a large company it's a daunting task.

Instead, just type kprobe.tel and you get all the information about the company called "KProbe". All the information you need shows up in a consistent manner and in only one place. If you have a mobile device, just clicking the phone number starts the call.

If you still don't get it, you've got to watch this creatively funny video. It's a bit long but the punch line at the end is well worth the time.

Dot.Tel now has the chance of replacing those clunky and thick paper phone books. Everything and everyone can be found on-line in an easy-to-use, easy-to-find format. When you want something like footwear, you'll type footwear.tel and off you go.

Creating a dot.Tel is very easy using a control panel and you can get a dot.tel for as low as $9.00 at www.name.com. Incidentally, dot.Tel was activated on the 133rd anniversary of the first use of the telephone.

As for myself, I've registered the following domains, some as directories, some as search helpers, some for new on-line businesses:

adgame.tel , ajob.tel , apparel.tel , artisans.tel
artist.tel , artists.tel , award.tel
bestrated.tel , buy-gold.tel , canadajobs.tel
