.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the body that supervises the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some worries due to the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
