Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement 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 involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions taking into account that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
