.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance 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 organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some concerns given that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 site should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
