.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some questions taking into consideration that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this should 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 opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP 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 interface.
