Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administers the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some questions due to the fact that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
