Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that regulates the gTLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some concerns taking into consideration that the generic top-level extension 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
