.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be created to be viewed flawlessly 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some concerns given that the generic top-level extension 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
