Dot .tel registrations plummet

The .tel TLD sports a kewl logo.

Dot .telthe only TLD to be launched without full DNS capabilities – has lost 34,000 registrations since March of last year.

That’s roughly a 10% loss year-to-year and the Ides of March, marking the eunuch TLD’s 3rd year since the 2009 launch, haven’t arrived yet.

The stats show a total number of 299,195 .tel domains and the number is expected to be lower by the end of April.

Despite its touting as a mobile user’s TLD, the lack of full DNS capabilities to host or monetize the domains contributed to dot .tel’s stunted growth.

    It’s going to be ugly, for sure.

    The .tel registry has done very little to get this TLD going.

    I have dropped all but the most premium domains.
