.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be opened properly 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 dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some worries taking into consideration that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
