How does it work?

The domain name which is different

The .TEL domain uses the Domain Name System (DNS) in a way that empowers .tel domain owners, whether businesses or individuals, to control how and where people can communicate with them. Traditional Top Level Domains (TLDs) use the DNS to return Address records or IP addresses that are used to reach websites or send email.

In the case of a website, when users look up netim.com, their device queries the DNS for netim.com's IP address (the Address record). The DNS returns the IP address associated with netim.com and the device uses the IP address to locate and view the netim.com website. All existing Top Level Domains use the DNS in this traditional way. However, the .tel does not communicate with web content or email -- it enables communication with people. It therefore requires an approach to storing contact information directly in the DNS for which Address records are inappropriate, since an Address record cannot identify a phone number or a VoIP service address.

The .tel will allow contact information to be stored directly in the DNS so that when a device performs a query for a .tel domain (i.e., AdamSmith.tel), the DNS will not respond with an Address record, rather it will return the contact information directly to the device, which enables the click-to-communicate functionality.

All your contact information centralised on one single location

What characterises the .tel domain names is that they fulfill a specific function: they are the contact point for all your current contact information. Such as e.g.: address, phone (vast of gsm), fax, VOIP / Skype, sms, E-mail, Instant Messengers (bvb msn, icq, …), Linkedin, Facebook, Hyves, Ebay account, Google maps, ... ...

This way, those who need to contact you will only have to enter your .tel domain name in order to check which contact method is the best to reach you at that very moment. However it is not possible to place a website at the address of your .tel domain name because it benefits for a webpage where your contact's detail will be published.
