Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot 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 concerns due to the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
