.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that manages the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some concerns as the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
