.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some worries considering that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active 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 handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
