Yesterday I talked about .me, so today it’s .mobi.
We’ve talked about dotmobi (.mobi) quite a bit over the last couple of years.
Personally I’ve always found the concept of the mobile domain space to be pretty cool and as I moved from using “standard” phones to using “smart” ones I’ve been using the “mobile web” more and more. Over the last year I’ve gone from just getting information on my mobile through to actually buying goods and services directly from it.
So I am delighted to announce that we are now fully accredited for .mobi.
What’s more, we’re the first Irish company to have dotMobi ICANN accreditation. DotMobi are based in Dublin, so it’s nice to be able to pick up the phone during office hours and speak directly to their ever helpful staff.
At present we are processing all new registration requests via our own accreditation, but we haven’t enabled transfers in as yet. (We’re hoping to get that up and running in the next few days)
If you’re new to the entire concept of the “mobile web” then you might want to check out some of the very cool resources and tools that dotMobi have made available.
WordPress users, for example, can get up and running very quickly with the dotMobi WordPress mobile pack, which enables you to easily offer up both a desktop and a mobile version of a WordPress site on your .mobi domain.
We’re also going to be revamping our own mobile site so that it’s a bit more useful, though I can’t honestly say when that is likely to happen! (If you saw our todo list you’d understand!)
