.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the organization that manages the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be opened 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 partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some questions in view of the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
