.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that manages the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be developed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns considering the fact that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
