.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that oversees the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be viewed faultlessly 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some concerns due to the fact that the universal 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 website should be built in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy 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 firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
