.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions as the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
