.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 permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administers the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some concerns taking into consideration that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
