.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that manages the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built 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 cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some concerns considering that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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 web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
