Dot 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 increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that controls the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain 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 tool.
