Webnames.ca adds .mobi domain names to their portfolio
Vancouver, BC – September 20, 2006 - Webnames.ca is now an accredited registrar for the .mobi domain extension. .Mobi is the first top-level domain dedicated to delivering the Internet to mobile devices and is designed to guide mobile users to made-for-mobile Internet content and services that can be accessed with confidence.
.Mobi is expected to draw significant support from the world's largest organizations when registration starts on September 26, 2006. General Registration commences with a two-week period called "Landrush", when available .mobi domain names will be available for registration at special premium prices.
In preparation for this new and unique top level domain, Webnames.ca has made the .mobi pre-ordering process simple and risk-free. With no upfront costs, customers pay only US$50 per year for domains that are successfully acquired during the Landrush. After this initial Landrush period, .mobi domain registration pricing drops to US$35 per year. .Mobi also presents a unique opportunity for domain entrepreneurs to secure domain names snapped-up long ago in other TLD extensions.
In an increasingly mobile society, businesses, organizations and individuals need to reach and interact with their customers via the mobile web. With mobile phones outnumbering personal computers by four to one, millions of people worldwide now access the Internet from a mobile device on a daily basis. Until now, there has been no standard format for navigating the mobile web or surefire way to identify whether a website is mobile compatible. .Mobi will help promote Internet-wide standards for mobile computing and navigation, in turn facilitating a better end-user experience.
