.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be opened 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 cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions considering the fact that the 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 accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
