.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that administrates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be viewed flawlessly 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 organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries given that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
