.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that regulates the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries considering that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can buy 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 firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
