.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that oversees the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed faultlessly 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 incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some questions given that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot 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 transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
