Vancouver, BC - October 11, 2006
DomainPeople offers a template-based Web Site Builder tool to help customers get their .mobi compliant Web sites up and running quickly.
DomainPeople, Inc., the eighth official domain name registrar accredited by ICANN (the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers), announced today that is now offering customers the option of adding a Mobile Business Site Builder feature to their .mobi domain name registration to get their Web site up and running quickly.
Hostway the mother corporation to DomainPeople commissioned a UK-based survey by independent research body TNS and found that although many people can access Internet services from their mobile phone, three quarters (73%) are not taking advantage of this.

"Our Mobile Web Site Builder tool makes it quick and easy for a customer to design a .mobi compliant Web site giving customers the opportunity to easily access the Web site while they're on the go."
