.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 ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that controls the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries considering the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
