"Most Websites Not Optimized for New Mobile Devices" Say the .mobi Experts at MyDomain

August 6, 2007; 06:24 AM
Vancouver, WA – Most mobile users who access the Internet are still in the dark ages in terms of the content they view and access speed. That is the word from the .mobi experts at MyDomain, one of the leading web site hosting companies and one of the first .mobi accredited website developers. Studies show that there are four times as many mobile devices as PCs in use, and more mobile users are accessing the Internet via these devices everyday with 1.3 billion expected worldwide by 2008. The bad news is the Internet experience of mobile users is still way behind that of PC users. The good news is that .mobi and companies like MyDomain are working to change all that.

.mobi is the the first – and only – top level domain dedicated to delivering the internet to the mobile phone. It was developed by a consortium of 14 of the world's most prominent mobile and Internet companies who have been working together to create a standard for website development that delivers the best mobile Internet experience via content designed specifically to be browsed and viewed on mobile devices. .mobi will revolutionize and broaden the possibilities for mobile internet access for users, service providers, content providers and mobile manufacturers.

Clint Page, CEO at MyDomain notes, "More and more companies, from publishers to retailers are creating sites aimed at mobile users. But while they are investing considerable funds to target mobile users, they are not investing in offering users the optimum Internet experience. Companies and businesses who want to ensure their users get content that's tailored for mobile delivery, download and display are turning to the .mobi domain and standards.”

.mobi eliminates the slow surfing and access times, and lets users see full pages of content created to be read and navigated on mobile devices. .mobi standards ensure increased user satisfaction by offering faster, smoother access to content and by allowing users full advantage of the advanced features and functionality on their devices.

MyDomain has extensive experience building .mobi complaint sites for businesses of all sizes, and is one of the few companies to employ .mobi certified developers. Its highly skilled team of Web designers offers consumers .mobi domain extensions and provides expert design assistance to ensure its customers have a complete suite of Internet- related creative services at their disposal. With its Web design team .mobi certified, MyDomain reinforces its commitment to providing education and tools to advance the mobile Web community.

MyDomain notes that there are many benefits to adopting the .mobi standard beyond just improved Internet experience. For content providers, .mobi potentially offers a massive new audience. With more people having access to Internet-ready mobiles than personal computers, .mobi gives any company that wants to be seen online more potential customers. For mobile manufacturers, .mobi delivers increased user satisfaction and encourages users to take advantage of all the advanced features and functionality on their devices. .mobi also offers mobile operators a host of new opportunities to reinforce customer satisfaction and loyalty, to meet raised service expectations and to increase revenues from new data services.

Clint Page of MyDomain notes, “.mobi is a boon for businesses of all sizes who want to tap into mobile users to build their bottom line. Most companies are still not taking advantage of all the mobile Internet has to offer.”


MyDomain’s reputation as a customer-centric registrar is well established. Founded in 1998, is a leading domain registration company and provider of premium-managed web site services, including the most reliable web hosting and self-service domain management tools. Purchased by Dotster Inc in 2002, distinguishes itself with tiered domain registration pricing, offering some of the lowest registration pricing in the industry as well as a complete array of Internet solutions including custom web site design, Internet marketing and shared and VPS hosting.
