Register .mobi TLD Domain Names


ICANN have recently approved the top-level domain .mobi for use on sites that host mobile device accessible content. As far as i can see registration of .mobi domain names will be limited to sites that host content viewable from a mobile device, such as mobile phones.

The creation of the .mobi TLD was a sponsored TLD, Sponsored by a consortium of companies including 3, Ericsson, GSM Association, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung, Syniverse, T-mobile, Telefonica, TIM and Vodafone.

The thing that doesn't make sense to me is that if this domain is going to be used on handheld mobile devices which don't usually have a keyboard, Why would they make the TLD four letters long, Shorter would have been better.

Funny Matt about having to type that extra letter on those tiny keyboards. Maybe a two letter domain would have made the most sense.

I recently got an internet capable cell in part to see how my sites would look on a mobile device. I think it's going to be more important to have a site that displays well on the small screens again.

I wonder though how useful it will be to have a tld extension just for mobile devices. Sure I'd like my sites to be viewvable on a phone, but not like I'm going to give up a .com for it. I assume most people will still be visiting a site from those ancient computers with their large resolution monitors.

Seems more like something to promote mobile devices than the websites that render well on them.
