.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some questions taking into consideration that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this has 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 viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
