.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that regulates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions as the generic top-level 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 accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
