Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed 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. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns given the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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 web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
