.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that handles the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement 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), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns taking into account that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
