.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened properly 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 dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some questions taking into account that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab 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 acquire its EPP 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 and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
