.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that controls the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some concerns taking into account that the 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 has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
