.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the body that oversees the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance 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 have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company 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 web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
