.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that administers the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some questions due to the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
