.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 increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that regulates the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some concerns taking into account that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
