.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that operates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened 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 collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some worries taking into account that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
