Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administers the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions taking into account that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
