Webnames.ca Launches Email for .TEL Names

Completing the package for one contact name for life

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Webnames.ca is offering email accounts for use with .TEL domains. Webnames.ca launched the service earlier this week in response to calls for email by .TEL owners on various forums and blogs dedicated to domain industry news.

Custom email is a simple and cost effective way of increasing brand awareness. When used in conjunction with a .TEL domain, it becomes an effective tool for driving traffic to the .TEL site and the additional web addresses and contact details it contains.

".TEL is at a very exciting stage. We've been receiving great feedback from customers who are actively using their .TEL to extend their reach and maintain relationships," stated Stephen Smith, CEO, Webnames.ca. "By giving our customers the ability to add email accounts and manage their MX records, we're making .TEL an even more powerful contact tool."

General registration of .TEL names began on March 24, 2009. Now a month into general registration, the utility of .TEL continues to grow with the availability of email and a growing list of open source applications for products such as BlackBerry and iPhone. Owners of .TEL domains located at other registrars who want to use Webnames.ca email with their .TEL will be able to transfer their names beginning in late May 2009.
