.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns in view of the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has 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 viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
