.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that oversees the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some worries given that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP key from your present registrar company. 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 tool.
