.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administers the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be opened correctly 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 involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some concerns as the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
