Welcome to the alternative domain for mobile devices.
Getting a domain for mobile content is easy - d.md. Simple, no complex process to go through. Purchase is on a first come first served basis for most generic words and phrases. Placenames, countries, international trademarks etc are reserved for those with obvious long standing primary rights or interests in those names. See name choices for more information.
Domains based on mobile phone numbers are reserved for the owners of those numbers and access is authorised by an SMS text.
d.md versus .mobi
4 key presses versus 8
Try entering (in web mode) d.md on your mobile. It takes 4 presses, no mistakes. Try the same with mobi. It takes 8 presses, and sometimes mistakes will be made - your customers will think your website is broken. d.md is far more intuitive and easier for your customers to type in. d.md is easier.
.mobi has hardly gone well?
fair pricing or sophisticated cyber squatting?
It has been suggested that the sunrise ultra high charge was really just a sophisticated form of domain hijacking/cybersquatting. The result is the same - trademark holders have to pay far more than cost or going rate for something they have rights over. d.md is fairer and better value.
vote with your feet (or your fingers!)
d.md addresses most of the gaps in the .mobi system. If a .mobi domain you should have rights over has been "hijacked", take a d.md domain at less than a tenth of the cost - and advertise it like mad! d.md is an excellent choice.
To order your domain just send a request to email@example.com, we'll do the rest.
