.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that manages the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific regulations. 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” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some questions in view of the fact that the universal 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
