.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed correctly 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 dot 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 restrictions have provoked some worries in view of the fact that the gTLD 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 opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
