.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement 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 incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions as the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
