Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that manages the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be viewed correctly 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 involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries considering the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
