Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that controls the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed 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 dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some worries given the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
