.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the organization that handles the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be opened without problems by mobile devices in agreement 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 organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some concerns as the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
