.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some questions taking into consideration that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can purchase 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 get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
