.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be created to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some concerns since the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
