.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must 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 cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns considering the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell 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 move it over to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
