.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that regulates 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 domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be built to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some worries taking into consideration that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
