Doing loads of kids parties and events I am on the move and need my business to be too! My mobile website was pretty simple to setup and I am looking forward to seeing more business come in from it! Had a bit of an issue loading an image but the live chat lady sorted that out for me - good service, now bring on the juggling
Very pleased with my website. I'm not particularly computer literate, but this couldn't have been more simple to set up, The customer service team were helpful, and it's great value for money. Would recommend to all.
I first set up a Telname last year for my old business (also in transportation) and found that apart from being easy to set up and keep track of, it gave me a useful business tool that is easy to give out to customers and at networking events. I find that with my lack of tecchy skills even I am able to manage this one! I am confident that this new site will also make life easier for me.
TRULY ABYSMAL CUSTOMER SERVICE, IGNORANT WITH A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE AND VERY UNHELPFUL, THEY HIDE BEHIND JARGON LIKE "DISTANCE SELLING REGULATIONS" AS EXCUSES FOR NOT KNOWING THEIR OWN COMPANY, AND WHEN THEY CANT ANSWER YOU, RATHER THAN ADOPTING A POSTIVE APPROACH AND TRYING TO HELP YOU WHICH IS PATHETIC AND INFURIATING. AND WHEN YOU ASK TO MAKE A COMPLAINT NOBODY ACTS UPON IT AND THEY THEN IGNORE YOU AND THEN DONT GET BACK TO YOU PROBABLY HOPING YOU WILL JUST FORGET AND GO AWAY, THEN WHEN YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW IT UP TO ASK WHAT'S HAPPENING THEY IGNORE YOU AGIN.........THREE TIMES!!!!!!!!! I HAVE ALL THE EMAILS TO PROVE THIS!!!!! THEY HAVE ALSO ATTEMPTED TO REMOVE MY FEEDBACK ONCE ALREADY UNDER THE REASON OF "COARSE LANGUAGE" I PREFER TO CALL IT "STRAIGHT TALKING" OR "TELL IT HOW IT IS"
LIKE I SAID AN IGNORANT AND ARROGANT LEVEL OF SERVICE OR SHOULD I SAY LACK OF SERVICE.
PLUS THEY AREN'T THAT GOOD VALUE!!!!!!
AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!!
PLUS WHEN THEY GET YOU ON BOARD THEY ARE GOING TO BE TRYING TO RAMP THE ANNUAL RENEWAL CHARGE RIGHT UP! MARK MY WORDS ON THAT ONE.............AND SECONDLY THEY DON'T HAVE A NORMAL LANDLINE NUMBER AND REFUSE TO GIVE IT OUT TO CUSTOMERS PREFERRING WE PAY PREMIUM RATE 08 NUMBERS TO GET SO CALLED SERVICE WHEN THEY DO ALREADY HAVE A NORMAL LANDLINE NUMBER TO CALL IN ON BUT WONT GIVE IT OUT........ WE LIVE IN AN AGE WHERE SO MANY OF US JUST USE MOBLE PHONES NOW, PARTICULARLY THE SMALLER BUSINNESS PERSON WHOM MAY USE THIS SERVICE, REFUND MY MONEY AND I WILL GO ELSWHERE AND TO A COMPANY THAT VALUES ITS CUSTOMERS....... UNLIKE YOURSELVES!!!!!!
AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!!
THERE PLENTY BETTER OUT THERE!!!!!!!
AFTER PUBLISHING MY COMMENTS HERE I DID RECEIVE A PHONE CALL THE NEXT MORNING WANTING TO RESOLVE MY COMPLAINT WHICH WAS NOT AT A CONVIENIANT TIME TO TALK PROPERLY. IT TURNED OUT THAT THE INDIVIDUAL CALLING ME WAS THE CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE THE VERY SAME PERSON WHO GAVE ME THE APPALLING SERVICE!!!! AND STILL MY COMPLAINT NEVER GOT ESCALATED TO THE HIGHER LEVEL THAT I DID ORIGINALLY ASK FOR!!! THEY TRIED TO JUSTIFY THIER ACTIONS BY STATING THE PROBLEM EMAILS THAT THEY RECEIVE BEING A PROBLEM TO THEM TRYING TO MAKE ME FEEL THAT THIER PROBLEM WAS ACTUALLY MINE!!!!! AND OFFERING ONLINE CHAT AS A SOLUTION WHICH IS PAINFUL AS WE ARE GIFTED WITH THE POWER OF ORAL CONVERSATION WHICH IS SO MUCH QUICKER THAN TYPING A CONVERSATION!!! IF THEY WERE MORE OPEN TO TAKE CALLS FROM CUSTOMERS PERHAPS THEY OR WE WOULDNT HAVE THE PROBLEM EMAILS AND THINGS WOULD GET RESOLVED A LOT QUICKER, THIS CAN BE SAID OF TOOOO MANY COMPANIES THESE DAYS AND NEEDS TO CHANGE IN MY OPINION, BE VOCAL PEOPLE.
INSTEAD THEY THEN CHOSE TO REMOVE MY ORIGINAL POST FROM HERE DUE TO "COARSE LANGUAGE" WHICH IS FAIR AS I CAN BE BLUNT AND DIRECT AND RIGHLTY SO IN MY OPINION. SO TO BE FAIR I REMOVED THE "COARSE" WORDS USED AND THEN RE POSTED.
I CANT ALSO HELP BUT NOTICE OTHER COMMENTS HERE WHERE PEOPLE SEEM TO HAVE BEEN SOLD THE SERVICE UNDER THE UNDERSTANDING OF GETTING MANY ENQUIRES WHICH THEY OBVIOUSLY DIDNT GET FROM USING TELNAMES. CERTAINLY MY SITE DOESNT APPEAR TO HAVE GENERATED ME ANYTHING AT ALL NOR HAS IT BEEN CORRECTLY FUNCTIONING FROM DAY ONE AND DONT SEEM TO HAVE BENEFITTED BY THIS SERVICE, AND I HAD VARIOUS ISSUES I NEEDED TO RESLOVE AND STILL HAVE NOT BEEN NEARLY 6 MONTHS ON.
P.S. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER IS [private data removed] I HOPE THAT HELPS OTHERS OUT THERE.
Great product. Very quick and easy to set up to start with. I have given my .tel name to all my customers and they now have all my contact details available through it. I can even update it on the go using my iPhone. Definitely recommend.
I have purchased two .tels now and am so impressed with how easy it was to set up a .tel, how professional it looks especially for a techie phobe and the content you can display. The set up instructions were really easy to follow and I am so happy with the end result..,It has already proven to be an important marketing tool as I have received phone calls on the back of having it. I can't recommend this product highly enough, especially for smes or individual consultants like me who want a web presence that is mobile friendly and a marketing tool. It looks so professional and I love that I can update it from my mobile. A great product, well priced, great design and easy to set up. Everyone should have one, I use it as my own e business card and have found the voucher link with passport to be a great feature. I am extremely happy with my purchase, love the link with google analytics and I look forward to more calls off the back of it... Thank you telnames for allowing us smaller businesses a chance to get found on the web.
I've been very happy with my web page and have had work from it instantly.
a must all
I haven't had a website until now.
Due to being very busy most of the time I don't have time to update or make use of the obvious good uses it has.
I,m a ltd company but only me that runs it.
i bought my telnames and set it up in a matter of minutes. The experience was super simple. My site was indexing well on google within weeks. I was generating leads online and from mobile customers very quickly. The value for money is truly unbelievable. With your telname you can link it to your other online properties such as twitter, google place or even Facebook. By linking to all these other sites i found it improved my leads even more. Congratulations to telnames for a fantastic product! It would be great if you could also add a payment mechanism such as paypal onto my telnames so that i can turn it into a mobile ecommerce site as well.
Wow what a website.. Gone are the days of lengthy complicated site building, simply pick a picture and enter your details and Kapow! It's uploaded! Simples...
They even sort out the Google keyword malarky for you.....
This is the most amazing product I have tried. I bought my telname several months ago and had absolutely no problem setting it up. In a matter of minutes I was online with a mobile optimised site. I also set up google analytics on my telname to track leads. The results have been very impressive. Buying a telnames has been the cheapest and simplest way for me to get online and drive traffic to my website. Great invention! Keep up the good work.
Months after setting up my tel i have had no equiries through it. I couldn't find my tel on the first 20 pages on my google search so gave up on looking for it. I recommend you save your money.
Good but seems a total waste of money as it has generated no trade so far, no info available on how many people have seem the profile so it is like throwing cash in a dark hole and crossing fingers
Cannot fault setting Mobile set up, very helpful ,lots of promises about potential customer hits but actually none to date, If you want a better advertising experience go to Gumtree £6.00 for two months. Lots of referrals .
Using Telnames was a fast, easy way to increase mobile marketing of our company. The ability to include Pictures, a video, presentation and many other features made our Telnames domain a fast method of viewing our Company and Products on the latest Mobile Technology. Great value for money.
I run an online copywriting, copy-editing and proofreading business, and it's important that customers can contact me easily and without any hassle. Adding the .tel domain (www.magic-spell.tel) to my list of URLs has been a real benefit. It was all very easy to set up, at a reasonable cost, and the behind-the-scenes service and communication has been great.
.tel is excellent value for money very easy to setup and use, and the customer service team are very helpful with any questions and sorting out problems
I've recommend .tel to a few of my friends
I wish I had found out about Telnames ages ago, it is so easy and very comprehensive.
My website is very large and holds a lot of information, I needed a quick and easy mobile website that I could set up and amend as necessary.
From the first visit the customer service was excellent, informative and very prompt.
It could not have been easier or more competitive.
So chuffed I found out about telnames
www.blackpooldrivinglessons.tel Have a look and see !
Paid £14.95 for a Mobile Device web page. Dead easy to set up and so many ways you can utilise this. I checked the price of the .tel address I wanted with a normal hosting company - it was £12 for a year. These guys have given me hosting for an extra £3. Wish them every success. I'm pleased anyway.
UPDATE: September 2013. I won't be renewing my subscription however as mine was a special offer and the price has substantially increased ;) Also hosting companies like One.com have free mobile optimisation within their web building templates in any case.
Thank you Telnames. Your product is first class!

With the addition of a mobile detection class on my main website I am able to forward mobile users to my telnames mobile site.
more than happy top service top site worth every penny and truly helpfull couyld not ask for more
When explained to me, this offer sounded too good to be true! They were offering me a service at an initial £9.99 for the year, that my website host had quoted me £35 a month!
Anyway, I went with it and it blew me away- quick, easy, professional looking AND so cheap. I wish I'd known sooner.
Absolutely incredible. Customer service is red hot too.
If you're looking to get a mobile website, this is a fantastic solution, its as professional looking as it gets, you dont need to hire designers, you can edit the info very easily and the price is superb!
I heard about telnames from one of our suppliers, had a look at the website, thought 'that sounds like a good deal' and within a few hours our .tel website was up and running. It looks great! We're using it as a mobile-friendly introduction to our guest house. It's got all the basics that people need to know. However, I can see some small businesses not needing a conventional website at all but just using a .tel.
Was looking for a telname to link to my website and didn't know where to start. A couple of phone calls and e-mails later it's up and running! But with a slight glitch. That was sorted over the weekend thanks to some great out-of-hours commitment from the support team!
Now I've got a mobile website - lavvly jabbly!!
From my first contact with Telnames I have been very impressed with the quality of their product and the diligence given to customer care.
I wish them all the very best for their future.
When signing up to this I asumed there would be some sort of outthere advertisements, but noone seems to have heard of telnames, so who will see my business on it ..Or am I misssing the point ?
I have found the .tel site very easy to use and it looks great viewed on a mobile phone
I have 4 .tel sites . one for each of my Coffee Shops and a generic one.
It was easy to set up, very cheap to own, great for getting a mobile ready website up and running in minutes.
I can update it on the go direct from my iPhone using the mobile app, so if i need to set up a promotion or coupon I can do it from anywhere.
They keep improving the capability all the time as well.
It helps with my Google rankings and local search results as the shop ones have a place name in.
