FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — AIT, a provider of web hosting and other web-related services, is accepting pre-registration of businesses seeking “dot MOBI” domain names.

“Dot MOBI” is the forthcoming series of names and addresses for mobile devices and delivery of mobile services that have been set aside by Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). ICANN is the private company that administers Internet addresses and domain name management.

For example, a company could be known as www.mobile.mobi rather than www.mobi.com or www.mobi.org.

Pre-registration does not guarantee that names will be awarded, AIT said.

AITDomains is part of AIT and is an accredited registrar with ICANN.

General registration for “dot MOBI” is set to open on Sept. 26.
