.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns because the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
