Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations

More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that handles the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created 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 partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.

The rules have provoked some concerns since the universal top-level domain 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.

Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase 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 authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
