.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some worries as the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
