.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administers the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .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 are required to comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries considering that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
