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.

HEXONET’s advanced backordering technology, now totaling fourteen TLDs (with the addition of .IN and .ME domains), legitimately creates the domain industry’s most comprehensive and advanced backordering service anywhere.
Vancouver, Canada June 1, 2010 — HEXONET (www.hexonet.net) announced today the availability of more backorderable TLDs (Top-Level-Domains), including .ME, to its growing and expansive list of domains to be backordered (snapping up high-value domain names as they expire). The additional TLDs, especially .ME, elevates HEXONET’s Backordering Service into a class of its own. Arguably, this new addition makes HEXONET’s service the most comprehensive backordering service industrywide.
Since the .ME registry opened on July 16th, 2008, .ME domains have been extremely popular. Some of the most identifiable domain names in the domain industry are either being registered or purchased through auction, including domains like fits.me, trade.me, and date.me. According to Robert Birkner, Chief Startegy Officer of HEXONET, “The appeal of .ME is its ability to create personalized or call-to-action domain names ever so naturally. Also, as social media continues to grow and the Web becomes more personal, .ME domains will, undoubtedly, be more important and be more valuable.”
Predrag Lesic, Chief Executive Officer of dotME Registry, was quoted as saying, “Though there are countless great .ME domains open for registration by anyone, we are excited to see technological innovations like .ME backordering making it possible for people to acquire .ME domains in non-traditional ways. Honestly, backordering is probably the best way to possibly obtain some of the most prized .ME domain names that have already been registered. ”
Individuals, businesses, and organizations can sign up for free at HEXONET and immediately start backordering .ME domains. Backordering for other domain extensions, such as .DE, .INFO, .BIZ, .ORG, .ASIA, .IN and more are also available.
