The future is mobile

The screen problem

Since the widely spread usage of the Internet there is a nearly uncountable number of interesting websites. The quality of the graphical presentation has become better and better. Most of the pages are designed for a resolution of at least 1024x768 Pixels on the viewer's side. Users with older computers and lower resolutions often have to scroll across the pages and can never see a whole page at once.
The situation is even worse for those who use their mobile phone or PDA to access the website, because these screens are much smaller. Thanks to UMTS and GPRS, the retrieval of the data is no problem today. The loading times, however, are often much too slow. The reason is the usage of high-resolution graphics, for example, that are designed for the presentation on business computers but not for the small displays and lower bandwidths of mobile devices.

The solution: .mobi

The new top level domain .mobi is intended for websites that exclusively target visitors using mobile devices with low resolutions.
In the future, companies will design their websites not only for “normal” screens but also for “small” displays. Which version of the website is being presented depends on the user. If he enters “www.lufthansa.de”, for example, the bigger variant is shown. For “www.lufthansa.mobi”, the user will get the mobile version.
To show you some examples of how these websites look like, we have compiled a list of existing pages.

The rules

Every operator of a website can register one or more .mobi domains. There are no limitations for domain holders. Thus, not only companies may receive .mobi domains, but everybody. However, there are some rules that have to be observed for the design.
Our .mobi Style Guide page provides a little insight into the rather complex regulations.
