.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that administers the universal domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created 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 collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some worries considering that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open 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 accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
