Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement 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. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions since the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
