Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the entity that handles the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI 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 are required to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some questions given the fact that the top-level domain 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
