.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that manages the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some worries taking into account that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
