.MOBI is a derivative of the word "mobile", indicating its usage to access to Internet resources through mobile devices. The creation of this extension was financed by companies such as Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Vodafone, T-Mobile, GSM Association or Telefónica Móviles.
The site developed under a .MOBI domain must meet certain established standards to ensure a proper viewing from different available terminals, such as the use of "div" instead of the classic tables, do not use frames, follow the XHTML-MP (WAP 2.0) mobile standards or the hosting service to be configured correctly, being accessible either with or without www.
Some .mobi domains are premium names with a higher initial registration fee over a standard registration with all subsequent renewals and transfers at a standard rate. All search results will automatically reflect premium names fees.
