Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be opened faultlessly 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 involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some worries given the fact that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
