.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the entity that controls the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. 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 rules have raised some worries since the universal 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 must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get 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 one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
