.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that regulates the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some questions because the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a dot 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 obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
