.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that handles the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. 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 induced some concerns since the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
