.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some concerns due to the fact that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built 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 organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
