.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed 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 cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some worries taking into consideration that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
