.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some worries given that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access 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.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
