.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the body that manages the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some questions considering the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be accessed 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 get a .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 get its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
