.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that oversees the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries since the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. 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 interface.
