.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the entity that controls 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 name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries taking into consideration that the top-level 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 has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
