NewBay Software to offer full .mobi domains.
Mobile community applications developer NewBay Software has revealed that it will offer full '.mobi' domain names to users for their personal websites from August 2006.
NewBay Software will offer the .mobi domains, which are aimed at mobile friendly websites, across its suite of products, including the FoneBlog mobile blogging and multimedia album solution. The new domain is expected to become the standard for mobile Internet browsing for consumers.
Users of FoneBlog mobile blogging will be able to purchase domain names to use to share personal websites with other Internet and mobile users and share images, content and contacts. NewBay Software has previously offered users the chance to buy '.com', '.net' or '.org' domain names for their personal websites.
NewBay Software claimed the .mobi domain name will boost subscriber loyalty for mobile operators and enable users to further personalise their websites. Mobile Top Level Domain Ltd (mTLD), the joint venture company, based in Dublin, Ireland, which is switching on the .mobi domain name, said the new domains will identify made-for-mobile Internet sites and applications.
