.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that supervises the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement 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 organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some worries as the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built 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 dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
