.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be designed to be accessed 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 collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some concerns given the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
