.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that regulates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns given the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
