Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. 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 questions due to the fact that 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
