.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that oversees the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement 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 incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some worries because the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access 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 the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
