.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 ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that supervises the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be created to be opened 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some concerns taking into account that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs 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 the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire 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.
