.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the generic top-level domain name 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 must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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 raised some concerns due to the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
