.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that administers the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some questions considering the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
