Davos to Connect With the World Through Davos.tel

January 27, 2009

NEW YORK, January 27 /PRNewswire/ –

– Location for World Economic Forum Now Easily Discoverable From any
Internet-Connected Device

As the World Economic Forum (WEF) kicks off in Switzerland talking about
economic regeneration and the further bridging of the digital divide, Telnic
Limited (http://www.telnic.org), the registry operator for the new .tel top
level domain (TLD), announced that the host town for the WEF is amongst many
municipalities, towns and cities that are securing their .tel domain names.

Davos.tel, Davos-Kloisters.tel and Davos-Congress.tel will enable the
town and its amenities to be accessible from any device connected to the
internet, very quickly and at very low cost.

“2009 will bring a revolution in the ability for organizations to be more
accessible to individuals online as the ease of publishing complex
information choices simply and affordably is achieved with the .tel,”
explained Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnic Limited. “With one year to go to
the deadline for the Lisbon Agenda set by the WEF to enhance people’s lives
through technology, .tel enables the ability to bring people and
organizations together in a very simple way.”

Other cities that have secured their .tel domains include Berlin,
Barcelona and Paris, to name a few, as well as several municipalities in
European regions. Perhaps the longest .tel request to be submitted so far was
also by the Confederacion Provincial de Empresarios de Santa Cruz de
Tenerife, applying for its eponymous domain.

The Sunrise period which enables trademark owners to protect their
intellectual property ends on Monday 2nd February 2009, after which time
anyone can apply for any available .tel domain. For more information, please
