.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administrates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement 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 organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some worries in view of the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. 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.
