.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be viewed without problems 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 organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some questions because the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get 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 firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
