DotTel (.tel) dropped over 26K domains out of the zone over the past 48 hours. Of the domains dropped since 01/January/2014, 26,131 were Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs). The domain count for .tel fell from 213,239 on 01/January/2014 to 187,022 on 26/January. This seems to be a classic bubble where registries make IDNs available to register in an attempt to hit the Chinese/Asian/Other markets. Not surprisingly, the bubble bursts and a lot of IDN registrations are washed away. Up to yesterday, 1503 non-IDN domains were deleted in .tel zone but there were 1417 new registrations since 01/January/2014. Did any one here register .tel domains?
