.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that oversees the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be accessed 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 cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions considering that the universal domain 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
