.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that handles the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some questions considering that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP code from your current registrar. 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 tool.
