Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions taking into account that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP code from your current registrar company. 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 tool.
