.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that operates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed 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 collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some concerns given that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this must 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 browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
