.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that supervises the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn 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), and so on.
The requirements have induced some concerns given that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has 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 accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
