.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name 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 requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be accessed correctly 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 .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some concerns given that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure 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 company if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
