.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that regulates the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be created to be accessed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some questions taking into account that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
