.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that controls the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some worries due to the fact that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
