Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administrates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. 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 worries considering the fact that the 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 site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .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 firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
