.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be opened without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some worries considering that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
