.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain 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 must comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some concerns considering that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
