.TEL IDNs are "Live"

HEXONET is proud to announce that the first .TEL IDN registered was "ä" - and that HEXONET (1API GmbH) was the registrar behind this domain, which was secured for our customer.  We proudly achieved a > 90% success rate for all pre-registered .TEL IDNs through HEXONET for our clients.  This success is due to HEXONET's newly developed "Go-Live" registration platform, which has been tuned and engineered specifically for "Go-Live" pre-registrations.  Most future "Go-Live" pre-registrations with HEXONET will be using this new system.  Please remember that successful pre-registrations aquired by HEXONET are allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis, so please don't hesitate place your pre-registrations as soon as possible.

Note: All .TEL IDN pre-registrations that were succesfully registered are now active.
