Money from Domain Names
.MOBI DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATIONS PASS 500,000
In just 7 months since it was launched the .mobi domain name had had over 500,000 registrations. It represents a good way to get into the domain name industry, given that most .coms have already been registered, it is still possible to find a good .mobi name with the potential to make a considerable amount of money. Recent .mobi sales include Sportsbook.mobi for $129,800, RealEstate.mobi for $85,000, Stocks.mobi for $70,000, Casinos.mobi for $53,000.
Top Brands lead way with Millions of Pages of Mobile Content
dotMobi is designed specifically for mobile phones and was launched in October 2006. Yesterday registrations passed 500,000 in 104 countries. This rapid growth shows that developers are keen to create .mobi sites for mobile phones. There are now millions of pages of content live on .mobi sites and many of the world's leading brands have set up their own .mobi sites in recent months.
Travel is a particularly popular area, with SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) being the first airline to enable .mobi access to flight and check-in information. Amtrak.mobi will soon have its own .mobi sites. BMW, Ferrari and Rolls-Royce already have their own sites.
Other major brands include ESPN.mobi, Maxim.mobi, FoxNews.mobi, BusinessWeek.mobi and CNNMoney.mobi. There are also social networking .mobi sites such as yolo.mobi and cerkle.mobi. For people on the move there is cabbies.mobi to help find a taxi in the US, UK and Canada and screenings.mobi to find film times and locations in those same countries.
VoteScotland.mobi allows people to vote in elections over the phone instead of going to the polling station.
.mobi sites are designed to ensure that consumers can be confident that an Internet site or service will work on their mobile phones when using a .mobi address.
It seems to me .mobi domain names will become more and more common, so now is a good time to start registering names, which can either be parked with a parking company or developed.
