Webnames.ca Predicts .TEL will Revolutionize the Way We Keep in Touch

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – October 20, 2008 - Imagine how simple life would be if every individual and company had only one point of contact, for life? Imagine never changing your business card, sending a mass e-mail notification about an address change, or having to update your contact list, ever again. In an age where there are more ways to communicate than ever before, .TEL is a welcome new technology which promises to simplify the way people keep in touch.

In the same way the Internet brought fundamental change, Webnames.ca believes .TEL will revolutionize how people keep in touch by eliminating the need for contacts to update their electronic phonebooks, ever again.Webnames.ca Predicts .TEL will Revolutionize the Way We Keep in Touch

Check out what your .tel would look like: Henri.tel, Smallco.tel or Largeco.tel

"I am very excited about .TEL," says John Demco 'The Godfather of .CA' and Co-Founder and Director of Webnames.ca. ".TEL will be a most convenient and efficient way to reach your contacts and ensure your contacts can reach you – wherever and however you choose. Instead of exchanging individual pieces of information such as your phone number, email, cell number, work number and so on, you will simply just give people your .TEL," he says.

.TEL provides individuals and companies with a single point of contact where they can securely store, update and share contact information, including:

  • E-mail Addresses
  • Phone Numbers
  • Social Networks
  • Gaming IDs
  • Websites
  • Blogs
  • Skype
  • MSN
  • Location Maps

With .TEL, there is no longer a need to notify contacts when you change a phone number or move. As long as they have your .TEL address, they will always have your updated contact information.

Simple name and keyword searches will make finding companies, friends and business contacts easier than before and .TEL's security options will let people choose who can reach them and how.

Webnames.ca is urging companies and individuals to register their .TEL now because popular company and individual names will be claimed. Webnames.ca is Canada's original and most experienced domain name registrar and is offering pre-ordering services for .TEL at no charge.
