.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed 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 involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some worries as the universal domain 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 viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
