.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some concerns given the fact that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
