.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some worries taking into consideration that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
