123-reg.co.uk logo!Mar 25, 2009 - With direct access to 130 million active social network users, MySpace (http://www.myspace.com) is now offering ".tel" domains to its members, who will be able to better promote their MySpace page in organic search results from any device by registering a .tel domain.

In a major event for domain registrars, the general availability launch of the .tel [...]
