.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 permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in accordance 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 have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries given the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most 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 .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
