.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance 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 organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries given the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
