On June 1st, 2011 at 15:00 BST, the .TEL registry will make 2-character and numeric-only .TEL domains available for registration. The Landrush Period is open to everyone and these domains will be registered on a first-come first-served basis.  Act now to submit your pre-order through your IDP account at Safenames and Safenames will attempt to register the names on your behalf as soon as the Landrush opens.

Domains that will be available in this Landrush Period include:

  • Two-character .TEL domains
  • Numeric only .TEL domains (2-7 characters in length with no hyphens)

This is an exciting opportunity to get a Premium .TEL domain, without having to enter an auction and bid for the name.

If you are a brand holder with a two-letter trademark or if your brand is commonly abbreviated to two-letters, this is the chance to secure your Premium .TEL domain.

If you use vanity phone numbers, use short codes for marketing and support services or if you have a numeric brand, you can register your Premium .TEL domain.

The registration fee for .TEL domains is $250 for 1 year, if the registration request is successful. If your request to register a name is not successful, you will be refunded $200.
