.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that manages the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name 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 are required to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some concerns as the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
