.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some worries since the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
