.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some questions because the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
