.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that oversees the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some questions due to the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP code from your present registrar. 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.
