.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that handles the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. 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 raised some concerns because the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
