.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some worries given that the universal 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 has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
