.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created to be opened properly 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 web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions due to 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 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 purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
