.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns given that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
