Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that controls the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
