.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .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 need to comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some concerns given that the generic TLD 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 website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
