.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be built to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some concerns due to the fact that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar company. 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 interface.
