.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that administers the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some worries considering that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can order 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 firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
