by Gareth Jehu | May 9, 2017The .tel domain is a unique way to promote your business, share information and ideas, and connect with your friends, fans, families and followers online. Launched originally in 2009, .tel was built on the simple premise that it should be quick and easy for anyone to get online. More than just a great domain name, for close to a decade .tel has empowered tens of thousands of website owners to launch simple, elegant web pages to host, publish and share their personal digital profiles with the world – absolutely free. Here we are in 2017, and .tel is still going strong. But today’s .tel is more versatile than ever before. It has grown and developed alongside the ever-expanding internet, and is adapting to meet a larger, more robust digital landscape. If you want to launch a personal digital profile page for yourself or your business, simply visit do.tel and set up an account with our upgraded Telhosting service – at no additional charge.
