Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement 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 page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some worries considering the fact that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. 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.
