.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be built to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance 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 incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some questions as the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
