Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that administrates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries because the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this has to 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 accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
