Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be designed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions considering the fact that the generic top-level domain 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
