Why choose a .mobi domain?

.mobi overview

Reach your audience on the move. The .mobi domain extension is a generic top-level domain (TLD) that was originally created to distinguish mobile-optimized sites from those best viewed on a desktop. Backed by the world’s leading tech and telecommunications brands—including Google, Microsoft, Ericsson, Vodafone, and T-Mobile—a .mobi domain name indicated that your site was made to browse on-the-go.

.mobi facts, stats & history

When the .mobi domain was introduced, companies were required to use this domain to distinguish their mobile-optimized site. Parent company mTLD ensured sites met various criteria that included speed, size, and layout. Today, mTLD still offers a free tool called Ready.mobi to test a site’s mobile performance. With more than half of all web traffic coming from mobile devices, nearly every main site is now fully responsive so having a .mobi domain name is no longer mandated.
