.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be viewed flawlessly 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 have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some concerns taking into account that the generic top-level 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
