Afilias, which runs .info and provides registry services to a lot of other domains, has acquired the .mobi registry operator – mTLD Ltd.
The acquisition was officially announced on February 11th 2010, with both Afilias and mTLD releasing press releases etc., as well as a message to pass on to any registrants who might be concerned by the acquisition.
Is this good news or bad news?
I’d suspect that it’s good news. It’s certainly not bad!
It will be interesting to see what, if any, changes Afilias will bring to the .mobi namespace.
