Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some questions as the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
