.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that regulates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created 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 cooperation with the .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 regulations have provoked some questions because the generic top-level extension 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot 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 get its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
