.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that regulates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some questions because the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
