.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that handles the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some questions considering the fact that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
