.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be created to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions given the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
