.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that administrates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special 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” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some worries as the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
