Trends & General Information

More and more internet-capable mobile devices allow you to surf on the go. Therefore, the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has introduced a new sponsored top-level-domain in July 2005: The .mobi domain is derived from the English word "mobile" and shows visitors an optimized website for mobile devices like smartphones, tablets and PDAs. Google, Microsoft and Nokia were some companies that sponsored the .mobi Domain.

Registrar for .mobi domains is Afilias, which is also the administrative contact for .info domains.
