DOTSTER KICKS OFF .TEL GENERAL AVAILABILITY,
WELCOMING DIGITAL NOMADS HOME

March 20, 2009
Dotster invites everyone to register for a .tel: their new home on the web.

Vancouver, WA - March 20, 2009, at 3 p.m. GMT, - Dotster, Inc., a leading provider of Internet business services, is welcoming everyone to register their .tel, the one easy-to-manage, online home for individuals and businesses.

Those in New York and interested in what has been touted as "the biggest innovation in top level domains (TLD) since .com" are invited to CyberCafe on West 49th Street in New York, NY, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. EDT where Telnic, the registry operator for .tel, is welcoming the digital nomad home to their one address for life on the Web. The catered event will feature a chance to learn more about .tel and to register your own .tel domain onsite, with Dotster giving away 100 free .tel addresses.

A .tel address allows entities to have an online presence without the hosting costs and design requirements associated with a standard website, and one simple, secure place for contact information, such as email, phone numbers, social network profiles, website addresses and instant messenger information.

".tel is literally pushing the boundaries of interpersonal communications through the Internet," said Clint Page, CEO of Dotster. "It offers more than just a place to store information, it empowers its users with choices like, 'What information am I going to make visible, and how am I going to share it?'"

.tel For Business
.tel also creates significant business opportunities. By registering a .tel, businesses and individuals will be able to take advantage of "click to purchase" ecommerce capabilities and will have the ability to quickly and inexpensively run online contests all in a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) friendly environment. Also, because .tel information is stored directly in the Domain Name System (DNS), it can easily run on all Internet-enabled mobile devices.
