.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be viewed properly 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 organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some worries taking into consideration that the universal top-level 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
