.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some worries taking into account that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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 most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
