.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that administrates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some concerns because the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
