.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that operates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be created to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some concerns given the fact that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
