.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that oversees the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries given the fact that the generic top-level 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 accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present 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.
