Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that operates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries in view of the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs 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 opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
