Mobi domian - register yours

The mobile web is about to receive the biggest shake-up in years with the start of open registration for mobile phone-specific website addresses, says the BBC.

The general public can now register websites ending with .mobi (dotmobi) as the backers of the mobile net hope to overturn consumer apathy.

This means that you can now get your mobile domian names registered.

Only one in 10 mobile owners use their phones to surf the net due to concerns over cost, speed and poor content. Sites ending dotmobi are designed for phones and must meet agreed standards which will help.

Almost 13,000 companies have already registered dotmobi addresses as part of a pre-registration process open to trademark holders.
