.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some worries due to the fact that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
