.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership 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 requirements have induced some questions considering the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
