.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 organization that oversees the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some questions considering the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .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 authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
