.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that controls the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some concerns given that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can book 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 company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
