.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries given the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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 browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
