Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that regulates the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI 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 special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established 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 restrictions have provoked some worries due to the fact that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key 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 interface.
