Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that controls the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some worries in view of the fact that the universal top-level 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 website should be created in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
