.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that oversees the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be created to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns because the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP code from your current registrar. 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.
