.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that oversees the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some concerns as the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
