.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that administers the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some worries due to the fact that the universal domain 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
