.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that regulates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened properly 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 organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries considering the fact that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
