.mobi, the new domain extension for mobile browsing, is about to enter the sunrise period.
Have you ever tried to visit a web site on your mobile phone? You probably ran into all sorts of compatibility issues unless you visited a special URL like wap.yahoo.com. Soon you’ll be able to visit Yahoo.mobi instead. The .mobi domain is designed for web sites to operate on portable devices with small screens.
Here’s the schedule for .mobi registrations:
May 22-May 29: Mobile company registration. Mobile companies that belong to recognized trade groups will be able to register their trademarks.
June 12-Aug 21: Trademark sunrise. Trademark holders will be allowed to register domains.
August 28: Open registration. Anyone can register a domain. Registrations during the first two weeks may be at premium prices.
