Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that oversees the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some worries given the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
