India domainers love .mobi

Youngsters drive 'dotmobi' craze in India. Among all domain types, Public Domain Registry has registered 269,405 domains from India out of a total of 1,494,925 domains across 240 countries.

Re: India domainers love .mobi

<<Now, mobiles have their own internet sites. Like the .com and .net sites accessible through computers, .mobi sites can now be accessed through your mobiles. And the rush to register names have begun. >>

Sounds a bit more like distorted PR from the registry. What is clear is that they are not claiming any impact with large corporates. The registrations do seem a bit high. Could it be that the youth is being targeted with the names at significant discount? Possibly even free?

<<The names that are most sought after are sex (what else) .mobi, adult, hotels, India, finance, entertainment and shop.mobi. These names were among the first 5,000 ones registered and were gone within the first 10 minutes of the opening of the registration process>>

Didn't the registry steal these for itself? What kind of BS is this?

Re: India domainers love .mobi

Mobile is huge in India. People practically live sleep mobile. Because of appaling land line infrastructure in India, mobile has taken shape in an entirely different perspective.

Indians might be the people that uses more mobile application than any other country, other than Japan maybe. People use mobile for loads of things. And this might explain the surge of mobi reg in india.
