Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some questions given the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 website should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
