Mobile domain reaches five year anniversary.
.Mobi was launched Five years ago, officially opening the doors to what would become a roller coaster for domain investors.(Example – Flowers.mobi)
Despite radical changes on the mobile front, .mobi as a domain has continued its growth. There are now more than one million active registrations and .mobi is the sixth largest generic Top-Level Domain in the world (.com, .net..org. .info and .biz come before it.) There are now two-character domains like nv.mobi and 53.mobi. There are now .mobi sites covering the world, in every vertical.
Technology quickly caught up and Mobile web access became less “mobile specific” with the growing prevalence of smart phones.
