Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be created to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance 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 restrictions have induced some questions taking into consideration that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
