.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that oversees the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some worries given the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this should 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 the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
