Moniker.com, the first and only provider of Domain Asset Management™,
today announced the launch of the .mobi "Land Rush" with thousands of
successful reservations for its clients. The company also announced
that it will add .mobi to its suite of domain name product offerings.
This new domain, which is being sponsored and supported by some of the
largest mobile and Internet providers worldwide such as Ericsson,
Google, GSM Association, Hutchison, Microsoft, Nokia, Orascom Telecom,
Samsung Electronics, Syniverse, T-Mobile, Telefónica Móviles, TIM and
Vodafone , is designed to establish a common format that is more easily
viewable for people who wish to surf the Web with cell phones and other
handheld internet devices.
"Mobile phone purchases are outweighing personal computer purchases
four to one around the globe, proving the necessity of the .mobi
domain," said Monte Cahn, Founder and CEO of Moniker.com. "As the
number of users who have Internet access on their mobile devices
continues to increase, so does the opportunity for marketers to appeal
to those consumers and establish their mobile brand presence."

domains in the "land rush" period. During this time period, .mobi
domains can be registered for only $34.99. During general registration,
