.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 growing. To meet this demand, the organization that regulates the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries given that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
