Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some worries due to the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
