Profiles Now Available in Domains

SINGAPORE, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

for the new .tel top level domain, today announced that all free trial test domains have now been updated to support Profiles and now

contain all of the major elements of the personal functionality available

when .tel domains go live.

    This new release enables people to share 'sets' of contact

information in their domain by grouping them under Profiles. These profiles

are user defined and can reflect different information according to the

situation the .tel owner is in at that time. As an example, a .tel owner may

set up a profile for 'home', 'work', 'travelling' or 'on vacation', all of

which reflect different contact methods or priorities of contact information

when someone accesses the domain. This enables the owner to quickly change

the 'status' of his .tel domain by switching on and off and reorganizing

contact information, including private contact information, with the click of

a mouse or the press of a screen or button on a mobile device.

    Telnic has also developed applications for mobile devices

including the iPhone and the BlackBerry that enable people to change their

Profile with one quick click, changing the contact information view


    "Profiles provide the ability to manually or automatically

change the view of a .tel domain according to the time of day or activity

that the domain owner undertakes," explains Henri Asseily, CTO and Chief

Strategist at Telnic. "This adds the ability for people trying to contact the

owner of the domain to understand the options that are available and the

preferred methods of contact that a .tel owner wants them to use at any time

of the day. Now, even from my mobile device, I'll be able to change the

contact information that people see when I'm jumping on a plane or moving

from home to the office in seconds." domain names will continue to be made available for

individuals wishing to register them for testing purposes from until February 2009 at which time the ability to

apply for a domain name will be closed. domains are available

purely for testing purposes.

    Trademark holders can purchase .tel domains already. Everyone

else can purchase them from February 3rd 2009. Further details about buying a

tel domain can be found from
