HEXONET’s Customers Ecstatic About Acquiring Multilingual .tel Domain Names

HEXONET’s advanced pre-registration technology for new TLD releases, like Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) for the communications-focused .tel, impresses customers with it's ease of use, performance, and success rate in acquiring domains.

Homburg, Germany – June 16, 2010 – HEXONET (www.hexonet.net) announced today that over ninety percent (90%) of pre-registered multilingual .tel domain names, placed with HEXONET, were successfully registered on behalf of its clients and resellers, when Telnic, the registry operator for the award-winning, communications-focused .tel, went live with IDN registrations on June 15th.  The first .tel IDN registered was “ärzte.tel”, German for  “doctors.tel”, which was registered through Germany based registrar 1API GmbH – the registrar of HEXONET GmbH.  With the growing importance, popularity, and value of IDN domain names, the acquisition of such a large percentage of pre-registered .tel IDNs has HEXONET customers elated.

Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) are registered and accessed using non-Latin characters.  For Telnic, these are domain names using the following languages – Chinese, Danish, Finnish, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish.  As the Internet continues to garner more global users, the demand of IDNs continues to grow unabated.

According to Justin Hayward, Business Development Director at Telnic, “the value of a .tel name, the Internet’s only concise and universally-accessible online calling card, is now greater and more universal with IDNs.  The ability for anyone to access your online contact information in their own language is highly beneficial.  We’d also like to congratulate 1API GmbH on registering the first .tel IDN.”

HEXONET’s high acquisition success for .tel IDNs is the result of countless engineering hours and years of operational optimizations.  Today, HEXONET customers have access to one of the industry’s most advanced pre-registration systems anywhere.  And with many more new TLD launches on the horizon, like .CO on July 20th, now is the time for individuals, businesses, and organizations to start pre-registering.
