Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some concerns considering that the universal 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
