.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 constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some concerns taking into consideration that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
