.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that handles the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be created to be viewed faultlessly 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 dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some questions taking into account that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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 viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain 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 one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
