.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. 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 raised some worries considering the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP code from your current 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.
