.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that operates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some worries taking into consideration that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
