.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that controls the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some questions given that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
