.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that supervises the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some concerns given that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing 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 control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
