.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that oversees the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some concerns taking into account that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this must 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.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
