.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 ever growing. To meet this demand, the body that regulates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed 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 partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some concerns taking into account that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
