.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be created to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some worries due to the fact that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
