ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the dot-mobi initiative of the company Mobile Top Level Domain (mTLD), which aims to get companies and brands to use the dot-mobi suffix to create specific sites for browsing and navigating on the mobile phone, thus ensuring a better user experience. The mTLD was created by electronic and telecommunication companies including Microsoft, Nokia, and Google. Although registration for the Internet domain names have begun, some companies are uncertain of its necessity.
