.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that handles the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated 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 induced some worries given 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 has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
