PHILADELPHIA — NamesBeyond, the leader in sponsored top level domain names, today opened registrations in the dotMobi domain to trademark holders and mobile industry association members. The .mobi domain name is reserved for Web sites specifically designed to work with mobile handsets.

“Registrations are now open for Phase 1 of the .mobi Sunrise, with exclusive registrations to members of mobile industry trade associations GSMA, CTIA, MMA, CWTA and MEF,” said Uma Murali, President & CEO, NamesBeyond. “Registrations are also open to any trademark holder or applicant for Phase 2 of the .mobi Sunrise, which commences on June 12.”

Neil Edwards, CEO of dotMobi (Mobile Top Level Domain [mTLD]), the .mobi registry said, “We are pleased to have NamesBeyond work closely with us to ensure members of participating mobile industry associations and trademark holders can register their names in the .mobi domain. That’s because .mobi ensures that the user experience of the Web on a mobile device anywhere in the world is as good as it is on a standard PC. And with four phones being purchased to every one PC, there are a lot of mobile users who are ready for a positive mobile Internet experience.”

NamesBeyond offers a complete suite of services to ensure clients get their names in the highly competitive, ‘First Come First Serve’ .mobi Sunrise process. “Clients prefer us due to our successful track record with securing their valuable names in prior domain name Sunrise periods,” said Uma Murali.
