Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that regulates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance 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 have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions given that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access 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 the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order 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 get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
