.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some concerns due to the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
