Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed 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 cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some concerns due to the fact that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
