Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some worries considering the fact that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 website should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
