.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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), etc.
The rules have induced some concerns taking into account that the generic top-level domain extension 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can grab 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 firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
