.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened flawlessly 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 site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some worries taking into consideration that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
