.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 growing. To meet this demand, the body that administrates the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened flawlessly 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 .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some questions since the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access 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 browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
