.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that handles the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be created to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some worries due to the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
