.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some worries due to the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
