    Just bought a .tel Any guide for them? I remember seeing one but.. I can not find it now. I have seen some .tel domains ranking for local searches. I only bought this one because it is the name of my town and I figured WTH right? If I recall the guide I am remembering was build a local directory with .tel using subdomains.. anyone recall?

    why .tel is different than a .mobi

    Since some of the services that are expected to use tel domains can be achieved on mobile telephones,
    there may be overlap with the intended use of the mobi domain.

    However, tel is about publishing contact data: phone numbers, SIP addresses and so on directly in the DNS, not on html-based websites,
    [SUP][/SUP] whereas the focus of the .mobi domain is providing web sites and other content formatted specifically for the user interface available on mobile phones and other mobile devices.



    However, to be more on topic and answer your question, read this, it is old but still revelant :) Enjoy.
    [h=3]Creating .tel directories with short subdomain name strings.[/h]
    Solution for planned new .tel directories and their subdomain names:

    There are two ways to create .tel subdomains:

    1) The classic way:

    mycompany.tel
    Section Folder
    ----- section01.mycompany.tel
    >Category Folder
    ---------- category.section01.mycompany.tel


    2.) The new method, here

    mycompany.tel
    Section Folder01
    >Category Folder
    ----- category01.mycompany.tel

    Section Folder02
    >Category Folder
    ----- category02.mycompany.tel

    Section Folder03
    >Category Folder
    ----- category03.mycompany.tel

    Section Folder04
    >Category Folder
    ----- category04.mycompany.tel

    Respectively:
    mycompany.tel
    Section Folder
    >Category Folder
    ----- category.mycompany.tel

    For example, if you where renting a subdomain to a other company, it might be instead of:

    ---------- category.section01.mycompany.tel
    Respectively
    ---------- teslamotors.cars.mycompany.tel

    It would be:
    ----- category.mycompany.tel
    Respectively
    ----- teslamotors.mycompany.tel

    (Of course you can skipp the need for a section folder, if you choose a smart domain name. Example:
    Category Folder
    ----- teslamotors.greensupercars.tel)


    With method "2.)" we have to concentrate more, and move the subdomains to category folders,
    but can do without subsubdomains, and only have subdomains, which are rather short and memorable .tel names
    (good for company directories).

    Method "2.)", became only possible, since we are capable to move folders, to other folders or subfolders.
    Here, our folder section of the control panel just gets longer, and there are no subsubfolders, if we don't want to have them.
    Instead of having a subsubdomain, we put a subdomain-folder within a other subdomain-folder, to create the same classic folder structure, and keep all subdomain names short.

    Before that, we could only work with method "1.)", which gave us long names for subdomains, such as
    ---------- category.section01.mycompany.tel
    Or
    ---------- subcategory.category.section01.mycompany.tel

    Conclusion:
    What we still will have, and need, is a structure of subfolders, subsubfolders and subsubsubfolders, etc., and which enable a smart navigation.
    But what we can have now, are short subdomain names, with only one sub-name.
    Furthermore, we are able to see all of our subdomains in the folder section of the control panel,
    without navigating and drilling through folders. We will have to find our subdomains by alphabetic search.

    Short strings instead of long strings.

    Another example for how to create new .tel directories and their subdomain names.

    No long domain name strings anymore, but we keep the classic folder tree system, for navigating:

    We keep the same folder-trees-structure.

    But instead of such long strings as for example:
    parrysguesthouse.bedford.bedfordshire.england.dial aroom.tel,
    respectively (classic strings):
    england.dialaroom.tel
    bedfordshire.england.dialaroom.tel
    bedford.bedfordshire.england.dialaroom.tel
    parrysguesthouse.bedford.bedfordshire.england.dial aroom.tel
    It would be (no long strings):
    england.dialaroom.tel
    bedfordshire.dialaroom.tel
    bedford.dialaroom.tel
    parrysguesthouse.dialaroom.tel

    And so, you could dial each of these domain names individually, and see its folder content, like in a classic .tel.

    It would be about creating only subdomains (not subsubdomains, or subsubsubdomains), and then moving them to the right place, within the folder tree:

    For example, you would have to create the folder/subdomain "bedford" as a direct subdomain of the main domain (bedford.dialaroom.tel)
    in the folder secton of your control panel, this way:
    dialaroom.tel
    >bedford
    (bedford.dialaroom.tel)
    and then move it within the folder tree to its propper position. That is a "hand job", because there is no string, that would be able to place it there for you:

    dialaroom.tel
    --england
    ----bedfordshire
    -------bedford X
    ----------parrysguesthouse
    .
    And so;
    bedford.dialaroom.tel
    is a subfolder of:
    bedfordshire.dialaroom.tel,
    but only in the folder structure, not as a string.

    And to find parrysguesthouse in bedfordshire, you could still navigate through the classic subfolder tree:

    dialaroom.tel
    --england
    ----bedfordshire
    -------bedford
    ----------parrysguesthouse

    And, if you dial for example:
    bedfordshire.dialaroom.tel
    then it would show you:
    parrysguesthouse in bedford:

    ----bedfordshire.dialaroom.tel
    -------bedford
    ----------parrysguesthouse

    Conclusion:
    All your subdomain names are shorter and more useful.
    And you can view them all on one sight, at the folders section of the control panel (alphabetic order).

    The only con:
    You have more work, and the method can lead to mistakes, if you are not very precise and careful.
    But the end result is better. And if you get used to working that way, it will be childs play, peanuts.

    Once you brought all names in positon of the folder tree, you would not need such a long string, such as:
    bedford.bedfordshire.england.dialaroom.tel
    As "bedford" can be found with:
    bedford.dialaroom.tel,
    and will show all its folder content (all houses and rooms available, in bedford, bedfordshire, england).

    Its funny I built one page on this .tel and it ranked for my keyword rather quickly. There has to be a way to make lots of pages on a .tel rather quickly with a bot or something to make a local directory for a town and make some adsense $
