Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that supervises the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be accessed 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 partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries because the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order a .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 obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
