Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that manages the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be created to be viewed without problems 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some questions taking into account that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
