.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that handles the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be created to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some concerns in view of the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this has 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 viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
