Instra Corporation, a leading global domain name provider has announced today that it has received many domain applications from big brands within the first few days of the registration period for trademark owners.
“We are glad that most brand names have taken our advice to apply for a .tel name as this is the next step for the convergence of Telephone services and the Internet.” said Tony Lentino, CEO of Instra. “We would also like to present Instra’s upcoming PhNUM offering, where users can easily obtain and manage business communications via ENUM convergence technologies. This new offering would help compliment the .tel namespace.”
The registration period for trademark owners ends on 2 February 2009. At the end of the registration period, the third party validation agent for .TEL names, Deloitte will make sure that the trademark being applied for is legitimately held, before awarding the domain name to the applicant.
