.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated 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), etc.
The restrictions have induced some questions taking into consideration that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm.
