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 fulfill this demand, the body that administers the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be viewed correctly 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some worries considering the fact that the generic 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 site should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
