.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some worries given the fact that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, 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 company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
