.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that regulates the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries considering that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
