.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 meet this demand, the organization that manages the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be viewed 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 partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions considering the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
