.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be viewed faultlessly 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries taking into consideration that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
