.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some questions as the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this has to 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 web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
