.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that regulates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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 restrictions have raised some worries given the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
