.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that regulates the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some concerns taking into account that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
