Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that handles the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some questions considering that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
