.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that handles the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some questions taking into consideration that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, 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 key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
