.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some concerns as the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .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 acquire its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
