.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 steadily growing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain 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 have to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some worries taking into account that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
