.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some concerns since the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
