.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some questions taking into consideration that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
