Dot 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 fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some questions considering the fact that 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 must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
