MySpace is currently marketing the new .tel domain name extension to their community of over 130 million users as short alternative web addresses to their MySpace Mobile profiles.

Over 20 million individual users access MySpace each month through mobile devices alone.

Register .tel Domain Names through MySpace?

MySpace is in partnerships with several ICANN accredited registrars and will be offering .tel domains to its community for $20 per year.

I recommend you register .tel domain names at Moniker for $14.99 per year.

A little before writing this article I registered MarkFulton.tel at Moniker for $14.99 a year.  The .tel revolution may take off quick because of the viral nature of information sharing.

Social networking is at the forefront of the tech industry right now and has exploded over the last year, this deal marketing .tel on MySpace could be all that’s needed for success.

Here is a quirky video from Telnic that tells a story of how .tel might be used in the not so distant future….

Telnic seems to be putting in the effort towards promoting the extension as an ideal that is inventive, unique… that is, connecting and communicating with people effectively through short calling card websites.
