.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 growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that controls the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be created to be viewed 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 partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some questions since the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP 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.
