.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administers the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries taking into account that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
