.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries considering the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
