.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that regulates the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions considering the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .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 obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
