.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that regulates the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some concerns given that the generic top-level domain name 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
