Dot 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 ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some worries given that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
