Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some concerns because the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access 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 viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
