Affilias Acquires DotMobi

February 11, 2010 in News

The Domain Registry of the .info domain, Affilias, has acquired dotMobi, the Registry for the .mobi TLD.

Under the terms of their deal, Affilias acquired all of dotMobi’s issued and outstanding stock. They plan to operate dotMobi as a wholly owned subsidiary.

The two companies have been working together for some time.

“Afilias and dotMobi have worked closely together since the Mobi JV (predecessor to dotMobi) was started by Nokia, Vodafone and Microsoft to apply to ICANN for the .mobi TLD in 2004. Upon approval, Afilias provided registry services in support of the successful launch in 2006, and today there are nearly one million .mobi registrations. Now more established, dotMobi will benefit from the increased focus that a seasoned registry expert like Afilias will provide.”
