.mobi Registrations Pass 400,000
dotMobi, the company tasked with managing the .mobi top-level domain name, announced Monday that over 400,000 registrations have been placed since the TLD launched in October 2006. In comparison, only 100,000 .com domains were registered in the first ten years.
The company cited a growing desire from consumers to access Web sites on their mobile phones as the reason proclaiming .mobi's success. However, mobile browsing is still largely in its infancy, with disparate devices and software applications providing vastly different experiences. dotMobi hopes to fix that, and is providing tools such as a site builder and analyzer to aid developers.
