.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that oversees the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created to be viewed correctly 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 .MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some worries due to the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
