.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be built to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions taking into consideration that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
