.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed flawlessly 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some concerns considering the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
