.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that controls the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in accordance 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. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some questions in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire 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.
