.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 entity that manages the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .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 questions due to the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can acquire a dot 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 firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
