We have been making some cool updates to the Community Telhosting system which I’m sure will benefit you, your resellers and customers and further enhance the value of owning a .tel domain.
In September 2014, we released an update that allows the .tel user to embed a YouTube, Vimeo or Daily Motion video directly into the .tel. This is great for small businesses and professionals who have video content to showcase their products or services but also great for individuals who want to post interesting video content on their .tel.
On 28-Oct-2014, we will be releasing an update that gives the .tel owner the ability to add a custom background image to their .tel. A background image can really help to bring the domain to life, drawing the user’s eye and differentiating from other websites. As is the case with image logos, images still need to be hosted on the internet however we have now built in Dropbox integration so users have a choice of either using their own hosting location or using Dropbox. More detail and FAQs on the background image release can be found at http://www.telnic.org/downloads/backgroundimage.pdf.
Custom headers for the Mobile Proxy
In early November, we will be aligning the header display for both desktop and mobile proxy views. At the moment, when rendered on a mobile device, the .tel displays a standard mobile only view which does not replicate any custom colour settings the owner may have applied to the Desktop view.
This release will ensure that any custom header colours set for the desktop are carried through and rendered on the mobile view thus providing a consistent look and feel across all viewing channels. This is great for those .tel owners who use this section as part of their company branding and identity or for individuals who just want consistency across all devices.
We are really excited with these new enhancements and we hope you are too.
