How to Start Your .mobi Online Presence Immediately

It seems that the new .mobi has been a very controversial domain extension so far. The main concern that people may have is that it takes time to understand the Switch On!™ Guides (required by mTLD, the .mobi Registry) and to create a .mobi compliant Web site. The time invested to fully understand a newly registered .mobi domain name will be well worth it to take advantage of everything the Mobile Internet has to offer.

DotMobi is the first domain extension that comes with such strict Web site design requirements and the general public is still struggling to understand what exactly stands behind .mobi and what was the main point of creating this extension. It is certain that the mTLD Registry, as well as .mobi Accredited Registrars, will have to spend an immense amount of time on educating the general public before people will have a clear understanding of how .mobi works.

DotMobi is a special domain extension that requires a unique approach. DomainPeople, as one of the first .mobi Accredited Registrars, has transitioned .mobi from being a controversial domain extension to a useful addition to the domain family.

"We are proud to offer a free .mobi compliant, no-HTML-knowledge-required Web Page Builder that comes with each .mobi domain name", said Robert Birkner, General Manager for DomainPeople. "Anyone can easily establish their .mobi online presence with our Web Page Builder allowing you to easily start using your .mobi domain immediately."

The .mobi Web Page Builder and Parking Page were created to allow .mobi domain owners to quickly and easily begin posting material on their mobi Web sites that complies with the .mobi style guide.

Here are some valuable features of the DomainPeople's Web Page Builder:

• Choose from 9 different template, color themes to reflect your company's brand
• Include an image for your Web site's header
• Upload your "under construction" image or choose one of 4 default images
• Post your company and contact information
• Preview your newly-created .mobi Web page before making it live
• There is a PC re-direct feature that distinguishes the browser type and redirects .mobi website visitors to your PC website if it’s viewed on a standard computer
• Flexibility to edit your .mobi Web page at any time

'DotMobi still might be a hot topic of discussion, and like everything new, it needs time to grow and carve out its niche", added Robert Birkner. "However this is great timing for the .mobi TLD to come in and change the Mobile Internet experience forever."
