.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some questions taking into consideration that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
