.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some questions given the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
