Why .mobi?

Everything you should know about .mobi

In order to address the saturation of traditional domain endings like .com and .net, new generic domain endings were created for specific industries: hospitality, real estate, photography, etc. The .mobi domain ending, for its part, is especially well suited for websites that are easily visited from a mobile device, such as a smartphone or a tablet.

The .mobi domain ending, an essential piece of your online communication plan

Since it was created in 2006, .mobi, short for "mobile," has registered online spaces available from a mobile device: this domain ending lets you show your customers that your site is available no matter where they are, and that it can adapt to their patterns of use. Open to anyone to register, this domain ending is understood by internet users around the world, the term "mobile" being understood in many languages.

Promote your business with a .mobi domain name

The advent of smartphones and tablets has created new ways of communicating, getting information, and also shopping. Today, internet users around the world use their phones more than their computers to browse the web. With a .mobi domain name, you can reach this entire segment of the population, smartphone and tablet use being especially widespread amongst the younger generations for online purchases or reading articles.
