Dot 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 steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that regulates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some worries due to the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. 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.
