.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some worries since the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
