.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that oversees the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened properly 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 organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some concerns given the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
