Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administrates the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be designed to be accessed properly 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. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some concerns given that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
