.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that controls the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be developed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns taking into account that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
