General Registration of .MOBI Domain Names Open

By Posted 2006 Updated   Domain Hosting

You can register a .mobi domain name for your website now as general registration is open for the public. The mobile web is growing and four mobile phones are purchased worldwide for every one personal computer, and more people now access the Internet via a mobile device.

.mobi is a top-level domain (TLD) approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers and is the first top level domain dedicated to delivering the internet to the mobile phone. dotMobi is the informal name of mobile Top Level Domain Ltd, which is the global registry for the .mobi top level domain and is backed by leading mobile operators, network device manufacturers and Internet content providers.

See the timeline. The Sunrise Registration was an opportunity for trademark holders to register their trademarks as .mobi domain names. Starting from 12 June 2006, the Trademark Sunrise is ended on 22 September 2006. Beginning on 26 September, .mobi registration opened to everyone with a period known as Landrush when .mobi domain names were available at cheap and discounted prices. The Landrush ended and now general registration is open at competitive rates to all since October 11, 2006.

I bought my domain name from GoDaddy.com and they are also offering .mobi domain names. Buy your .mobi domain name now before someone else grabs it…
