Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that controls the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some concerns given that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 site should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
