Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that oversees the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed correctly 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. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries given that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. 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 interface.
