.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that operates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened properly 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 organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some concerns taking into consideration that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
