.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the gTLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement 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 involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some worries considering the fact that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company 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 and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
