.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some worries considering that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell 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 get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
