web hosting news

The Web Hosting Team has recently announced the addition of .mobi domains to its range of products. .mobi domains are intended to be used to with web sites designed for mobile devices such as smartphones.

While .mobi domain names have been available since 2006, The Web Hosting Team has only made the decision to promote .mobi domains recently. The increase in small data-capable devices over the past few years has resulted in many businesses redesigning their sites or creating totally new web sites for these devices.

“With so many people carrying smartphones and tablets these days, business owners are realising the importance of targeting these customers,” explained Simon Drain, CEO of The Web Hosting Team. “Many business owners and webmasters have created versions of their web sites that look fantastic on a smartphone. The website owner will often have a .com domain that they use with their main web site, and will buy the .mobi version of the domain to use with their new mobile-focused web site.”

Simon Drain states that as .mobi domains become more common, smartphone and tablet users will associate the domains with basic, well designed web sites that look great on their devices. “We think that the time is right to make .mobi domains available to our customers,” said Simon Drain, “as smartphone users now make up a significant proportion of the population.”

.mobi domains are available through The Web Hosting Team for $19.99. Further information is available at http://www.thewebhostingteam.com
