.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some questions given that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this needs 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 viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, 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. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
