.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that controls the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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 rules have raised some questions because the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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 Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar company. 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 tool.
