.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that manages the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .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” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some questions given that the 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 should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
