.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administrates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed 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 ought to be developed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some worries because the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
