.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that regulates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be created to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .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 questions taking into account that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
