Telnames disrupts domain industry with mobile app for iPhone

Innovative app enables anyone to buy a domain with just App Store credentials

LONDON, United Kingdom – November 13th, 2012. Telnames ( is today transforming the domain name industry with the launch of its Telnames Mobile Website Builder app for the iPhone. A first of its kind, the app enables professionals and businesses to buy and create their own mobile-friendly website in less than 10 minutes with just their thumb.

“We believe this app changes the game by removing all the complexities involved in buying and building a mobile-ready website. From today anyone, regardless of technical ability, can get their own place online in a matter of minutes,” said Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnames. He added: “We’ve simplified things to such an extent that you can even dictate your content and it will automatically publish it on your mobile site.”

Recent studies from Google and Kelsey revealed that 58% of small businesses in the US still don’t own a website and 98% do not have a mobile-optimised online presence.

Mr. Mahdavi added: “These results highlight the very real disconnection between the needs of small businesses and existing solutions provided to them. Our ground-breaking app will help bridge this gap.”

The Telnames Mobile Website Builder is available as a free download from the Apple App Store from today at
