.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be viewed without problems 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some concerns in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a dot 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 company if you get its EPP key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
