.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that oversees the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created 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), etc.
The regulations have provoked some worries considering that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can grab a .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 get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar company. 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 tool.
