.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 meet this demand, the body that handles the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance 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 involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some concerns since the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
