.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that oversees the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions given the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
