.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that supervises the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be opened faultlessly 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 dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions taking into consideration that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
