.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administrates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns taking into account that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell 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 company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
