.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that operates the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be created to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns because the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
