.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that oversees the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions since the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
