.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that controls the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some concerns given that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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 web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
