AITDomains Pre-Registers .MOBI Domains

AITDomains has started pre-registering businesses for the soon-to-be-ready dot-MOBI extension, the first top-level domain dedicated to mobile devices.

"The .MOBI domain puts the web in motion so businesses can reach consumers anywhere, and with PDA's outnumbering PC's, that is no small consideration," said AIT's Chief Executive Officer Clarence Briggs. "dotMOBI dovetails into our Hosted Exchange service that pushes voice, e-mail, and messaging to hand-held devices."

AIT has supported wireless-enabled hosting for years with its unique and powerful hosting platform, anticipating the growing use and greater capability of mobile devices. Mobile handsets today have full Internet capability, and the consumer market is more mobile than ever - consumers with idle time, people away from the office in need of information, shoppers on the road looking for the right merchant. "This is going to create a significant shift in Internet user habits." said Chief Marketing Officer Sean McCoy. "Imagine global access, from anywhere, anytime."

General registration for .MOBI opens September 26th. Pre-registration gives domain owners a running start toward getting the name they want; there are no guarantees that the desired name can be secured, but working through an accredited registrar like AITDomains increases the odds.

In a related note, AIT is rolling out wireless networks in various metro areas across the U.S. through the company's dealerships to include Atlanta and Pittsburgh. The multi-million dollar initiative will also include training in several industry certifications through partnerships with various community development organizations. "Not only will we build the network, we'll also train the people who will service and support it," said Briggs. "This is a compelling package - register you dotMOBI domains, host it on a wireless platform, and use Hosted Exchange to handle messaging needs, all from a single source."

Founded in 1996, AIT provides web hosting and related services to 200,000 domains in 107 countries, and is a two-time Inc 500 Company. AIT customers benefit from a 93,000 square foot data and service center, 24/7 support, and industrial grade infrastructure. AIT also offers e-commerce, data storage, software development, IP telephony, application hosting, and a technology training center.
