.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administrates the gTLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries in view of the fact that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
