dotMobi to Auction 15 Premium Names in March

On the heels of a successful auction appearance in 2006 when .mobi domain names sold for a combined total of just under US$400,000, dotMobi is making 15 premium names available via auction.

On March 7, dotMobi plans to auction a select group of domains at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. WEST 2007 in Las Vegas. The .mobi names scheduled for auction are: "airfare," "areacodes," "cam," "casinos," "creditscore," "directions," "eat," "libre," "loancalculator," "models," "newmusic," "pics," "pizza," "realestate" and "singles." This selection of names is subject to change at dotMobi's discretion.

These names join the 400,000 .mobi domains that have been registered since General Registration commenced on October 11, 2006.

"Last October, the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. auction put three .mobi domains into the Top 15 emerging domain sales for 2006. The demand for these domains demonstrated the industry excitement around mobile content," said Neil Edwards, CEO of dotMobi. "We expect this list of 15 names to draw an equal, if not greater, demand. And with the variety of free tools and developer partners we have, building content behind these names will be a simple and affordable proposition for the buyers."

He added, "But more importantly, the sale of these 15 highly desirable names allows dotMobi to fund ongoing initiatives for the web developer and content provider communities such as our developer forum and the free mobile readiness testing and reporting tool.

The dotMobi Premium Names list is a compilation of commonly used words and phrases which dotMobi has set aside for equitable allocation as an alternate to the traditional "first come, first serve" procedure. These names will be distributed in batches through 2008 using both auction and Request for Proposals (RFP) processes.
