.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some worries considering that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. 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.
