.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that supervises the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be viewed properly 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some questions considering the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
